Man Jumps Knee Deep In Water, Fights Off A Gator To Save His Dog!

Florida Man Fights Off Alligator That Attacked His Dog: ‘I’d Fight Tooth and Nail for Him’

Trent Tweddale and his dog, Loki, were enjoying a Monday morning walk on his Wesley Chapel farm in Pasco County, Florida, when a 13-foot alligator attacked the 6-year-old rescue pup.

I grabbed the dog’s collar to try to pull him back, and I ended up in a tug-of-war match with this gator, and the gator was not letting go,”  Tweddale, a former Army staff sergeant, said. “So I let go of the collar, and I got about knee-deep into the water and started pounding on the gator’s head until he eventually let go.”
