Feb. 24 (UPI) -- A hungry alligator stole a large fish off the line of a young boy attempting to reel in his catch from a pier.
A video posted to Facebook by Bass Masters And Fish Experts shows an excited young boy attempting to reel in a large fish while fishing with two men from a pier.
One of the men warns the boy, Conner, that there's an alligator coming, but the warning comes too late.
The alligator snatches Conner's catch in its jaws and swims away. The boy tries to pull the fish out of the gator's mouth, but the creature's grip is too strong.
"There's no way you're bringing that in, buddy," one of the men says.
The location of the incident was unclear.
