Florida grandpa kicks alligator's a** to save his beloved dog9/19/2012
"I just knew that my best friend was going to be dead. I took off." That was Steve Gustafson's reaction when an alligator snatched his dog, Bounce, from the edge of a pond in his retirement community. The Florida man didn't hesitate, sprinting to the water and jumping on the 130-pound reptile's back, wrestling it "like they show on TV." The gator eventually released the terrier, but it took a bite out of Gustafson's hand before slinking beneath the water, no doubt hoping that none of its friends saw it get beat up by a 66-year-old grandfather. Gustafson, who required stitches, says he's having the gator stuffed and put on display to remind him of his close call. [Source]
