According to studies, the state of Georgia is home to over 250,000 alligators, making it the fourth highest alligator-populated state in all of the U.S.

A Savannah resident named Marquell White engaged in a 26-minute long struggle with a seven-foot-long alligator lurking about at a local park. In an attempt to lure the powerful carnivore away from children playing close by on a swing set, the brave Savannah native grabbed the alligator by its tail and dragged it all the way across the park, as onlookers watched in complete shock.
