Officers were quick to the scene where a Florida man aged 39 shot a crocodile in cold blood. The Florida man in question lived in Tallahassee but had traveled locally for a day out with his dog, when the dog was attacked by an alligator. 


The Florida man instantly jumped into action, stabbing at the Alligator to free his dog, including taking out the Alligator’s eyes in an attempt to get it to loosen its grip.


A nearby pedestrian spoke to us recently, and told us “the man was crazed when the alligator lunged for his dog. He instantly stabbed it in the eyes with a pen knife and ran it back into the river”. The pedestrian continued “but it didn’t end there, he felt bad for the blind alligator knowing it would then starve to death, so he ended it’s life, I was in shock”.
