Facebook video shows horse attacking gator in a field near Gainesville

A video posted on Facebook appears to show a horse attacking a gator at Paynes Prairie near Gainesville.

"Horse attacking a gator at Paynes Prairie," Krystal M. Berry writes on her Facebook post. "I'm still shaking."

The video shows the horse grazing, with a few other horses, behind it, when it trots toward a large alligator in a field nearby and stomps it. The gator strikes back, appearing to bite the horse in the leg.

The two then separate.

    Demolition of the southwest wing of Channelside Bay Plaza is underway, with a big chunk of the building expected to come down today.
