BATON ROUGE, La., May 22 (UPI) -- A motorist filming while taunting an alligator with his truck learned a valuable lesson when the reptile ripped into the front of the vehicle.
The "Gator vs. Truck" video, posted to YouTube by user keet246, shows the truck approach the alligator, which slowly backs away with bared jaws, and the driver can be heard saying, "Hey, watch my truck," when the gator gives a warning bump to the vehicle's front bumper.
The truck continues to slowly roll toward the gator, which responds by ferociously tearing off a portion of the vehicle's fender.
"Oh, that's nice," the driver says, "Son of a gun."
"Messing with a gator and he won!" the video's description reads.
