This is crazy….but I would totally do the same thing.
Richard Wilbanks saw his pet, Gunner, get snatched by an alligator and dragged into a pond. This happened in Estero, FL.
That’s when he sprang into action, jumping into the water to rescue his beloved dog.
He said the gator just came out like a missile and snatched up his dog.
It’s crazy because Richard runs into the water…grabs the gator and opens his jaw and the pup runs off. All while still smoking his cigar.
Thankfully, besides a puncture wound, Gunner is doing ok and so is the gator. He said that he’ll keep Gunner on a leash and away from water, but he also understands that the gator was just doing what gators do
The encounter was recorded by wildlife cameras set up thanks to the Florida Wildlife Federation.
This is crazy!!!
