A Scottish angler gets a terrifying surprise when he pulls in an unlikely catch… Well, he is in Florida, and these predators are out there…
Most people who fish have caught something unexpected at one time or another. Maybe they happened to snag an interesting artifact or an unexpected species.
In this case, the bait was taken by an unlikely creature. Okay, maybe not for most Florida native, but if you’re a Scotsman on holiday, it’s altogether a different story. For him, this particular fishing trip shaped up to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
The moment of truth arrives, and up floats a six foot long alligator. As the reptile emerges, the angler expresses his shock and disbelief, along with a few choice words.
In the midst of this chaos, there also happens to be a giant turtle hanging out nearby. Oddly enough, the turtle seems indifferent to the surrounding action and the gigantic predator.
Likely, the first thought to cross most peoples’ minds would be to cut the line. Let’s hope this angler was able to release his catch safely, without injuring himself or the gator.
