Dogs Savage An Alligator

Look away now if you are squeamish!

Pack of Wild Dogs kill Alligator In Florida!

Sometimes nature is cruel but there is also a beauty in that cruelty. The alligator, as one of the ultimate predators, can fall victim to the kind of implemented 'team work' strategy which is possible due to the pack mentality and social structure of canines. See the attached and remarkable photograph courtesy of Nature Magazine. (Brought to you via friendly spam from my dog-lovin'-friend, Susan.)
