It was evening, and after playing fetch they were enjoying the lake. The golden retriever named Nalu was swimming in the water when her owner saw something moving on the surface of the water.

She immediately jumped into the lake to defend her dog from an alligator. The latter was 6 feet long. So the woman came down on the predator with all of her weight.

The alligator soon turned his attention to Susan. When they received help, both Susan and Nalu were injured. They were immediately taken to hospital.

Thankfully, these two survived. Susan received injuries on her hand and Nalu on her stomach.

They were not only physically injured but also emotionally traumatized. That’s why for three weeks Susan was afraid of going near the lake.

This is absolutely a horrible incident. But the story itself is incredible. Susan is an example of a true animal lover. Nalu is lucky to have such an amazing and selfless owner.
