(CNN)In a dramatic encounter recorded by surveillance cameras, a Florida man chased an alligator under water and rescued his 3-month-old puppy from the jaws of death.

Richard Wilbanks, 74, of Estero ran into his backyard pond, wrestled the gator above surface, and pried its jaws open to free Gunner, his Cavalier King Charles spaniel.

"We were just out walking by the pond," Wilbanks told CNN, "and it came out of the water like a missile. I never thought an alligator could be that fast. It was so quick."

He said adrenaline or instinct kicked in, and "I just automatically jumped into the water."

Holding the alligator wasn't so tough, but prying open the jaws was "extremely hard," he said.

Wilbanks said his hands were "chewed up," and he went to a doctor for a tetanus shot.

Gunner was mostly unharmed.

Oh I’m sorry, you must have fallen and wooped your head.
Cue the reel of Swedish men scaring off moose and bear, UNARMED.

Pffft, alligators are known to be pussies. Let me see you do that with a salt water croc.

Mooses can be pretty dangerous. They will run into you and then kick at your head. One kick and you are basically dead.

No mooses down south. Crazy amounts of snakes and spiders. Bunch of wierd bugs. Coyotes and gators are probably the biggest critters to worry about.

I also recently found out that Pit vipers can still strike when they are too cold to really move. The majority of thr snakes on my property are Copperheads, Ive personally killed about 20 in the last year and a half, 15 of which when I first got down here and started cleaning up the yard.Had to keep a loaded shotgun and a roofing pike to move shit.

The gator wasn't all that big. I would have done the same thing.

Ticks are like the most dangerous animal in Sweden. I think they are the cause of the most nuisance per year in Sweden. Moose, wolves and bears doesn’t come close.

Mooses have been dying off in droves because of climate change in America. Tick colonies are moving much farther north now due to the lack of cold and sucking huge moose dry. The rangers have had their hands full trying to manage them for the last few years.

Also steve irwin wrestled gators all the time. It was the damn stingrays that got him. Fun fact, if he had left the barb from the stingray in his heart and gone to the hospital he likely would have lived. Pulling it out is why it killed him in minutes. Same general principle as leaving a knife in the wound and getting medical help rather than yanking it out and trying to stem the bleeding.

What was really impressive to me was that this guy was 74 and wrestled a gator.

The danger with ticks is Lyme disease. My wife had a touch of it last year and was on strong antibiotics. Lucky we caught it early. This year we only got 4 ticks, one of them was on my fat ass. Found it while I was taking a shower. we keep a container with alcohol to throw them in. Last year we found close to a dozen.

One moose, meese, a pod of meese. You know, like a gaggle of whales, or a murder of hens.

I thought moose were related to geese. You learn every day, you know, like Ben Franklin invented electricity. None of this is real any way, it's all chemicals in your brain.

Speaking of critters:

It seems every year there are random reports of mountain lions in Maine. It's possible but with the numbers of people wandering all over the Maine woods year round I still find it highly unlikely.

Holy shit, has anyone actually seen the video? the guy doesnt even take the cigar out of his mouth while " wrestling" the gator.

To add context he picka the gator up with his hands, so it is small. Definitley gangster as dhitt though for 74 year old, watch the video.

Gangsta would be if you were walking your puppy in the woods, and if a bear attacked your puppy and you wrestled with the bear to free your puppy from its jaws.

So I decided to google meese to see if it actually means anything.


Wiki says:

Plural of moose, by analogy with goose → geese.

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/meese




moose (plural moose or (dated, rare) mooses or (non-standard, jocular) meese)

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/moose


So I guess you can say moose, mooses or meese. All of them would be correct?

Moose is correct. If you say mooses, you are an old fart(patom). If you say meese, you are a stupid fucktard(habebe).

That is what it means.
