A boat of tourists got an up-close-and-personal look at nature at its wildest as a Louisiana wild boar gets eaten by a gator.
When you go out on a boat to get a look at nature, especially in Louisiana, you may expect to see some wild and possibly dangerous animals.
But even the most adventurous probably don’t expect to see anything quite like this.

As a boat full of tourists approaches a bank full of wild pigs eating, they also notice that a nearby gator has also spotted the same thing. The camera is rolling when the action begins and catches everything as the Louisiana wild boar gets eaten by a gator.
It’s quite obvious that the hand of man played a role in this gator’s latest meal. Not to say that he could not have managed without the help, but the food tempting the boar further and further out into the water most certainly sealed the young pig’s fate.
So while we can’t exactly call this a natural occurrence of the wild food chain, we can perhaps use it as further proof of natural selection. The only pig willing to chase the food into the deep water soon finds itself as something bigger’s dinner.
