Video Captures Moment Florida Man Rescues Puppy from Gator


Surveillance video caught the moment a Florida man saved his puppy from an alligator's jaws. After hearing cries from his Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Gunnar, Richard Wilbanks found an alligator dragging the three-month-old puppy into a pond. The 74-year-old immediately jumped into the pond, wrestled the gator and pulled its jaws open so the pup could be freed. Wilbanks, who is being praised as the dog's hero said "Oh, it was just a shock. Instincts just took over. Adrenaline kicked in and I just went right into the water after the gator and Gunner.
