PALM COAST, Fla. - A hungry alligator just couldn't help itself and decided to snatch a little Florida boy's catch while he was fishing with his dad.
In a video posted to Facebook, Sean McMahon says he was fishing in his backyard in Palm Coast with his 7-year-old son Dawson.
The little fisherman is pulling his hardest to reel in the big bass.
"It's alright, buddy. Keep going," his dad.
"He's a fighter," Dawson says.
As the boy reeled in a bass and finally pulled it on land, the alligator rushes out of the water and grabs it! The gator even took the boy's fishing pole with it!
"Dawson caught a bass tonight and out of nowhere an alligator came up, ate the bass and ripped his pole into the water!" McMahon wrote.
