A Florida man jumped into action to save a small dog from the clutches of an alligator. Richard Wilbanks, 74, told Inside Edition that he was having a cigar as he and his 3-month-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Gunner, enjoyed a nice walk when a small gator came out of nowhere and attacked his pup as they walked past a pond. As the gator thrashed Gunner around in the water, Wilbanks did everything he could to save his puppy. All the while, he never dropped his cigar.
