Horse attacks alligator at Florida state park

GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA — Here's something you don't see every day: a horse challenging an alligator to a fight.

Nursing school grad Krystal Berry caught the crazy moment on cellphone video while visiting Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park in Micanopy on Wednesday. In the video, the alligator is seen just minding its own business when the horse decides to trample over it.

The alligator hisses and starts moving away but the horse comes back for more and ends up getting bit on the leg by the ticked off reptile.

'I didn't see any signs of distress for gator or the horse, but I did contact the reserve,' Berry tells the Daily Mail. 'They sent someone out, but I didn't hear back.'

According to Berry's Facebook post, she was 'still shaking' after the incident. It's believed the horse was trying to protect a baby horse nearby.
