Another classic case of cat vs. alligator.
Mugsy the cat has a zero tolerance policy for gators stepping out of line. Forget cat-and-mouse. This is cat-and-gator. And this cat's no scaredy.
This ballsy feline takes swipe after swipe at a hungry gator. Each time the alligator reaches for the chicken on the shore, Mugsy takes a swipe. And, to everyone's amazement, the predator seems humbled.
Watch as Mugsy denies this alligator its chicken treat again and again...and (miraculously) lives to become a YouTube celebrity in the process:
"What is the cat's endgame?" asks one observer.
Fair question. We have to wonder that, too, given Mugsy's clear disadvantage in this scenario.
Near the end of the clip, the frustrated reptile looks as if it's had enough and makes a move toward Mugsy. Within seconds, the toothy predator loses his nerve and slips back into the water.
Cat: 1. Gator: 0. Gator denied.
