Default Good News for the SEBF 2007 Participants!!

Saw this article in the paper this morning:

Quote:
Dog Pack Kills Alligator In Florida

At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty,
and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.
The alligator, one of the oldest and ultimate predators,
normally considered the apex predator in its natural eco-system, can
still fall victim to an implemented team work strategy, made
possible by the tight knit social structure and survival of the
fittest pack mentality bred into canines over the last few thousands
of years by natural selection.

See the remarkable photograph attached, courtesy of Nature Magazine.
Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the gator preventing it from breathing,
while the remainder of the pack prevents the beast from rolling.

There were somewhere around 2500 nuisance alligator complaints to authorities in Florida last year...

They are nothing more than handbags on legs anyway...
