Rumble - Whenever we think of alligators, we think the worst. They take parts in our craziest nightmares, with their toothy jaws and beady eyes that can make even Superman run for the hills. Unlike them, horses are domesticated animals and can do no harm in our eyes, right? Well, wrong apparently. We easily forget that horses are so powerful that even one kick can send us to our death. These magnificent beasts might have been domesticated, but they will never be fully tamed.

It appeared as if it was just a normal day in Florida. The alligator state is used to these crawlies popping up from out of nowhere at any point in time, so the appearance of this beasts in the park was no big deal. However, the plot thickened when just a few feet from where the alligator lied, stood a group of horses, munching on some grass.

Mary LaValle and her friends went to Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park on April 12 to celebrate their recent graduation from nursing school in Ocala. They probably weren’t expecting to witness a titanic clash of nature. In this video, a gasp can be heard from the stunned group as the stallion from the group of horses – which included a mare and her foal – chases the alligator away, kicking at it. In a later video shot by one of LaValle’s friends, the horse stomps the alligator. However, neither animal showed signs of stress or harm after the scuffle, according to local reports.
