Rare Mississippi Alligator Attack Caught on Video

Man suffers non-life-threatening injuries in incident caught on video.

Alligator attacks are fairly rare in the U.S., but they do happen on occasion. Recently an attack was actually caught on video.

These men were trying to relocate a 10-foot gator when it suddenly latches onto one man’s arm in Hancock County, Mississippi.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch further reports this video was taken on Highway 603 as local authorities tried to get the animal off the roadway where it was blocking traffic. The reptile was likely in the area as a result of storms that caused the nearby bayou to flood and displace the animal.

The unidentified man who was bitten was taken to the hospital and treated. Thankfully the alligator didn’t hang on too long and the man was able to get free before it could do worse damage.

It just goes to show these big reptiles and their cousins, the crocodile are nothing to mess around with. It only takes a moment for them to severely hurt or kill someone.
