Don't Feed the Gators

Brent Carey said he was at a park in Charleston with his girlfriend and her dog, Chance, when an alligator jumped out of the water and started to drag Chance into the lake.

Carey jumped on the alligator, grabbed it near the back legs and began to fight to free the dog.

The dog was finally released and it ran to the shore.

This happened in South Carolina, usually these stories come out of Florida. Or maybe I hear about them in Florida because I live here. Brent has some advice:

"They informed me that I should not jump on the back of alligators," Carey said. "I agree with that. The take home message is not to jump on the back of a gator."
