Florida man fights alligator after it snatches his dog

Pets are like family, and when they’re in danger, people will go to great lengths to save their lives.

Sometimes that means putting your own safety at risk. That was the case for one man, who had to fight off an alligator to save his beloved dog, but says he didn’t hesitate to jump into action.

On Tuesday, Mike McCoy, from Holiday, Florida, was out for a walk by the pond with his eight-month-old chocolate lab, Jake. But what was a pleasant stroll turned into a nearly-deadly nightmare, when an alligator attacked and pulled Jake into the water.

“He was in the death roll with that old gator,” Mike told ABC Action News.
