Brian Altena was golfing at the Oyster Bay Golf Links course which lies on the border of North and South Carolina in the US when he spotted a large alligator meandering towards him with something in its mouth. The alligator seemed entirely disinterested in the golfers, instead heading to a nearby lake with its catch. According to Altena, the object was part of a species of large carp that reside in the surrounding lakes. Credit: YouTube/Brian Altena.
