Have You Seen This? Horse attacks alligator
There is a saying that is eloquent and thoughtful. It goes, "Nature be scary." I believe this is what that poet thought of when conjuring that line. - photo by John Clyde

FLORIDA OF COURSE Nature is a really beautiful thing. I am often left speechless by its beauty, power and immensity. It also leaves me speechless more than I'd like to admit because it straight up scares me to death.

Yes, nature is beautiful, but it's also terrifying. Usually, when I think of nature that gives me heart palpitations, my brain goes straight to bears. Don't get me started on bears, we're not here to talk about bears. Just know they are crafty, fast, strong and my mortal enemies. But we're here to talk about this video involving a horse and an alligator.

Some tourists at the Paynes Prarie State Park in Florida saw this scene. An alligator seems to just be minding his own business when a horse decides he's too close to his business and stomps on him. It's crazy to watch, and I thought that horse was losing a leg for sure.

I don't understand the habits of animals, so I'm not blaming one party or the other, but I'm guessing that alligator has a headache and that the horse is now known as Stompy among his friends.

Check out the video and then do yourself a favor and research how to keep yourself safe from the terror known as the bear.
