For one woman, this nightmare came true. Imagine, hearing your dog literally screaming, as you get a chill down your spine because you know something horrifying is happening. Florida woman - Lori Beiswenger had to act fast, and if not for her fast actions, the result would have certainly been fatal, as an alligator was dragging Hope (her 9 year old dog) down into the water.
You have all heard the term "cats have 9 lives," but what about dogs? In doing research about this story, I discovered that this was not Hope's first brush with death. She was adopted before she was to be Euthanized, and had also previously been hit by a car. Add being attacked by an alligator to this pups list, and she is definitely one lucky girl!
So what exactly happened?
When Lori heard the screams of her dog, she immediately took action. She ran to the alligator, and began pulling on it's tail so that it would let go of the dog.
According to www.wtsp.com - Lori stated that all she kept saying was "you're not getting her."
When the alligator let go, the dogs body was floating in the water. A volunteer at the golf course (which is where the horrifying event took place) grabbed a shovel to fish the body out of the water. Of course, the worst was expected, but Hope took off running up the bank as soon as she was out of the water.
