He threw himself on the to back of the alligator and began punching him on the head to force the gator to release the terrified dog from its jaws. After a few blows to the head the gator released its prey and slid back into the water in Palm City, Florida. Mr Murphy said: After a few blows to the head the gator released its prey and slid back into the water in Palm City, Florida.....Mr Murphy said: 'I hit the back of that gator. It was like jumping on a pile of rocks.

'But when I did, I caught him right behind the head, his mouth opened and Doogie took off and the gator turned around and went under the boat and out he went.'
