Mess with an alligator and lose a bumper. An alligator showed a Louisiana motorist he was not joking around as he tried to block Keith Carmouche of Avoyelles Parish in Louisiana from driving through his turf. The online video shows Carmouche slowly driving through the high grass giving the gator ample time to move away. But the ferocious reptile had other ideas and tried to intimidate the man in the large steel truck by opening its mouth and showing its teeth. Undaunted Carmouche continued forward and it cost him. An alligator stopped a motorists trying to pass him in a swamp by ripping off his truck’s front bumper with its mouth. The alligator lined up its mouth to the bumper and latched on - ripping the metal frame off the vehicle. "Oh well that's nice. Son of a gun," Carmouche is heard saying in the video. He wasn't injured but the gator caused about $1,000 worth of damage. I honestly thought he would back up and run the other way. "I honestly thought he would back up and run the other way, when he did the exact opposite," Carmouche said about the incident, according to GRINDTV. "Afterwards, I got out of my truck, with the alligator still present, grabbed the bumper pieces, and then left." Hopefully he'll take the long way home from now on.
