A Texas rancher lassoed a 10-foot alligator and wranglers crawled atop the thrashing reptile’s back after it got a little too close to the landowner Hal Conover’s cattle.
Bystanders shot video of the recent takedown near Hawkins, a town about 100 miles east of Dallas.
The video later shows two men atop the gator as it thrashes and bites one man’s hand. The man suffered minor injuries.
The alligator was eventually loaded into a trailer and hauled to a wildlife park.
