    A father and son in South Carolina had to idle in the road last weekend, while a 9-foot gator dragged a bloody, bloated carcass across the pavement.

    Daniel Martin posted a 44-second video of the scene Monday on Facebook, explaining it happened while he was camping in gator-rich Berkeley County, just north of Charleston.

    "Wow, that's a big alligator," Martin is heard saying in the video. "And there's a fish or something in the middle of the road. He's coming to eat it."

    Whether it was a very large fish or a baby deer is unclear. The alligator is seen cautiously crawling into the middle of the road, where it grabs the carcass with its mouth and drags it into the dark, leaving a trail of blood along the asphalt.

    I live on a lake. I learned to watch the other animals. We have ducks, birds, turtles.....ducks disappear then you need to be cautious. Nature Is wicked cool. That said , in the 19 yrs i have lived here I've only scene a gator once. And it was after a cat 3 hurricane.
