Video Shows 8-Foot Alligator Knocking Trapper Unconscious With One Big Headbutt 😳

By Shannon Walsh

While most of us would run the other direction if we came across a nine-foot-long alligator on the street, the sight isn’t totally foreign to Floridians. And trapping, or capturing, these creatures is just another day in the lives of those whose job it is to get rid of them. 

Usually, trappers tap the head of the creature to disorient it before taking it away.  (Often times, according to Indy100, trappers go on to sell the alligator's meat and hide for money.) Things didn't quite go as planned for this group of trappers, though. After tapping the head of the huge creature, it reared its long face, head-butting one trapper. He was knocked out for several seconds.
