This fisherman got lucky, then unlucky, in a matter of seconds.
After reeling in a large fish, a huge gator swims up, takes the fish, and leaves without so much as a “thank you.”
Watch the video to see how it all went down.
Competing with local wildlife is a fact of life for fisherman living in healthy ecosystems. We’ve seen fish stolen by eagles and crocodiles before. The difference is, in most areas occupied by alligators, they are legal game.
This looks like a pretty good place to come back to when gator season rolls around. Until then, this guy might be better off finding a different fishing hole.
