Fisherman Trying To Pull In A Gator Out Of A Canoe Gets Knocked Into Water

Well, that is just straight up terrifying.

I’m not entirely sure if this dude was just fishing and hooked into a gator, or was actively hunting alligators, but either way, it’s not a spot I want to be in.

Sure, it would be cool to hunt them, but getting thrown into the water is definitely a line I don’t want to cross.

But of course, there’s ways to avoid that, like using a more stable boat than a canoe…

Alligators can grow huge, up to 15 feet long and over 1,000 pounds. They are powerful creatures they lunge fast in water and on land when attacking.

Their most powerful weapon in an attack is their bite, which is one of the strongest in the world. It has been measured up to 2,000 pounds per square inch.

These are apex predators in their environments, capable of doing lots of damage.

Hunting for gators is done for a variety of reasons from commercial to population control. People set bait for the alligators then pull them in and shoot them. They can be eaten and used for other products and have highly monitored seasons and limits in area’s they are hunted.

This video shows a man pulling in a gator standing at the very front of a canoe with what looks like some kind of spear.

You can’t get much more unstable than that, but then add in an angry gator to the mix? Let’s see what happens…

As he pulls in the line, the gator, flips and flops and nails the side of the canoe, sending the man flying out of the canoe and into the water seemingly landing right on the gator.

Ya had to see that one coming…
