Video: Mad horse attacks massive alligator in Florida

  • 14/04/2017

This is the incredible moment a mad horse attacked a massive alligator at a park in Florida.

The incident was filmed by nearby tourists earlier this week, who were shocked at the brutal confrontation.

The horse was grazing with its herd at Paynes Prairie, a state park near Gainesville, when it became agitated at the placid alligator.

The horse snuck up behind the alligator and launched a savage barrage of stomps and kicks while the alligator rose up to defend itself, snapping at the horse's legs.

The horse then returned to its friends, while the gator wisely moved out of striking range.

A witness to the attack said neither animals appeared injured afterwards.
