It’s unclear how he expected this standoff to end, but this man definitely got what he deserved.

Watch as guy backs his truck up towards an alligator that is just minding its own business and ends up starting a fight that he isn’t going to win.

The beast begins snapping its massive jaws at the truck to make it crystal clear that he does not want to be bothered, but the man doesn’t listen.

“Hey watch my truck!” he says in the clip.

A few seconds later, it tears his bumper clean off the back of the vehicle to put an end to the nonsense.

Gator:1, Man: 0.

Rep. Don Young of Alaska certainly has problems, but wolves aren’t one of them.

At a House Natural Resources Committee hearing this week, Young was complaining about how members of Congress were rallying together to help protect the gray wolf, when they don’t have to deal with them on a regular basis like he does.

“How many of you have got wolves in your district?” he asked. “None. None. Not one.”

And then, likely due to a full moon, he offered up this completely insane proposal.

“I’d like to introduce them to your district,” he said. “You wouldn’t have a homeless problem anymore.”

A spokesperson for Young later clarified to the Washington Post that the “analogy was purposely hyperbolic to stress the point that these predators pose serious threats to wildlife management and their listing has damaging impacts to local communities.”

Alaska has “the largest remaining population of gray wolves in the United States,” according to Defenders of Wildlife.
