    Dogs Attack Gator

    At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw
    beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty. The alligator, one of the oldest and ultimate predators,
    normally considered the 'apex predator', can still fall victim to
    implemented 'team work' strategy, made possible due to the tight knit social structure and 'survival of the pack mentality' bred into the canines. See the remarkable photograph below courtesy of Nature Magazine. Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the gator preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of
    the gator.
