Pack of Dogs kill Croc In Florida

bonz(WI)December 21, 2005

Dogs savage a crocodile.

Sometimes nature is cruel but there is also a beauty in that cruelty. The crocodile as one of the ultimate predators can fall victim to the kind of implemented 'team work' strategy which is possible due to the pack mentality and social structure of canines.

- but not if you're squeamish!

Those dogs are just relentless, Bonz! I wonder what the owners think about that attack. It almost looks like the dogs were fed that poor croc!

I'm going to need therapy after this one. Happy Solstice to you too, Bonz. :)

Holy Kamole! Well, I WAS hungry but NOT after seeing THAT. Somebody get a hold of Fox Network. This one falls right in line with one of their reality TV shows: "When Good Dogs Go Bad". And I thought was vicious and unpredictable!

As the witch said in "The Wizard of Oz", "What a World, What a World!" That's some sad goins on! :) Arum

If the laid back ears on that cat are any indication, the dog had better protect that pretty nose. LOL. Sandy

That is to cute Bonz. I was wondering why there was news story link. You got me on that one.

Semper, if that had been my dog, all you would have seen is to furry streaks going through the house. :o)

G'day,
Scott

Scott, trust me! The only streak from the above scene ALWAYS comes from the big bad Dobbie and NOT the other way around. After playing ever so gently with the cat for a while, the cat decides it's time to teach the pup yet another lesson in "Catology". Then after the Dobbie runs away crying and the smoke has cleared, the cat SLOWWWWWLY gets up and walks away doing a mighty good impression of John Wayne.

CATS!
