This girl got more than she bargained for.
A little girl fishes with her father in this video from YouTuber John Rider. Her catch is stolen by an alligator who comes up out of the water, stealing the lure in the process as well. He must have really wanted that fish, I suppose.
There’s a life lesson here. And that lesson is watch out for gators, all the time.

The video is a little old, but there’s nothing like watching childhood dreams get crushed by a reptile that looks like it came from the late Cretaceous. Best bass bait? Color changing lures. Best Gator bait? Bass, apparently.
We kid, we kid. Best practices for dealing with gators can be found here.
