Watch Wild Drone Video As Alligator Leaps From Pond To Snag It Out Of the Air

"Welcome to the bayou," writes a viewer of the video.

A pilot is navigating a drone equipped with a camera over a pond. The camera spots something in the water. Upon a further look, it's clearly an alligator. The drone is maneuvered down a few feet for a closer view, which turns out to be a very dangerous move. The alligator is engaged, curious, and ready for a more intimate investigation of the strange object. Whether it senses danger or perhaps food, the alligator leaps into the air to see if it can make a capture with its enormous jaws. Check out the video below to see how it turns out.

"Welcome to the bayou," writes commenter @rkh0503.

"Alligator said 'No drones allowed,'" suggests @david.99x.

"And when you learn to follow the rules," announces @legsgo5, "you can have it back."

"LOL," chuckles @spillway3, as he notices "the way the gator waited until the camera was focused."

"Ha! That's what you get," comments @noneya340. "Leave him alone."

"How did you get it back?" asks @good_dad_to_3. "Probably didn't," guesses @myequestrianjourney_. "Probably recording it on their phone and had the video saved."

"It always freaks me out," confesses @red_kas_sox. "They basically stand in the water."

"The alligator was just waiting for the right moment to strike!" surmises @ginacasarez0.

"You invaded his privacy," writes @betternow_21. "He's got things he doesn't want you to see."

User @jessicamae1688 summarizes the event like this: "An alligator may have eaten it," she says, "But its owner cried crocodile tears because drones aren't cheap."
