Mary LaValle and her friends went to Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park on April 12 to celebrate their recent graduation from nursing school in Ocala. They probably weren’t expecting to witness a titanic clash of nature.
In this video, a gasp can be heard from the stunned group as the stallion from the group of horses – which included a mare and her foal – chases the alligator away, kicking at it. In a later video shot by one of LaValle’s friends, the horse stomps the alligator. However, neither animal showed signs of stress or harm after the scuffle, according to local reports.
