Man stabs gator to save dog: http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/South/08/27/gator.attack.ap/index.html

Basically, the guy's dog was wandering around off its leash when a gator jumped out of a pond and snatched it. Dude jumps into the pond and stabs the gator in the eye with a pocketknife, saving the dog. That's hardcore. Personally there's no way I'd have the balls to do that. I'd probably reach for my cell phone instead. "Honey, I've been thinking... how would like to go with me to the pet store and get a new dog?"

The thing that gets me is, why let your dog off its leash to wander around near any body of freshwater in Florida? My grandparents once had a backyard in Florida that bordered a canal. That place was lousy with gators. Every morning there would be three or four of them sunning themselves in the backyard. Just about every day, someone would lose a dog or a cat to gator. Maybe the guy was new to the area or something, but when my grandparents lived there, a small animal wandering around the canal was garaunteed gator-food.

Dude, I have a cat and if some gator attacked him and I had a pocket knife I would have shoved it through his eye than take it out and do it to his other eye. I love my cat. Its not some kind of toy I could go and get another one at the store.

sitting here just thinking about it i'd have to say that i probably wouldn't try to jump in and save the dog, but if i were there and my dog got snatched away and i had a pocket knife on me...i dunno, i might...but i doubt it.

:dblthumb for that guy being such a badass!

In my mind, I'm picturing a huge, man-eating gator. In reality, a six-foot gator probably isn't that big. It still takes some guts, but I'm guessing the gator wasn't as large as most of us think.

Not only is that guy brave nearly to the point of being crazy, he's got to be fast as hell too. How do you whip out your knife, run over there, and stab this thrashing gator in its tiny little eye before it drags the dog into the water? Damn.

And if he'd go that far for his dog, I'd hate to find out what he'd do for his family. Probably would have turned that gator into giblets with his bare hands.

Well, Washington state is pretty much the leader in Bigfoot sightings though, right? Maybe the knife could come in handy after all.

I agree that some people are internet badass's but not everyone is just talk! I would die fightng to save my pet and so would a lot of people (see above story)! So watch the gerneralizations there Snigg, I've been on these boards (SBN since it started and then when this board opened, I was over here the day fred opened it up) long before you were even thinking about bikes! nOOb! :twofinger

I agree its safe to assume snigg that your one of those that when your friend is getting beat up you will pick up the phone and call 911 instead of trying to help your friend. My pet is very important to me and it’s one of my best friends. If someone or something attacks it, it might as well have attacked me and if an alligator attacked me I would not hesitate to put a blade through its eye. I see this the same exact way.

THis guy is proof that not everyone would be a pussy and not help a family member. A dog especially is a family member I'm not with it on the cat thing cause that may have been a quicker meal but a dog is mans best friend. Anything that would die for me is worth at least trying for.
