The woman, Georgina Miller, filmed the incredible moment the gator stole a bagel she was feeding to her pig, Penelope, ABC affiliate WPBF reported.
Just before Penelope took a bite, the gator surfaced above the water surrounding her flooded yard and snatched the bagel, the video shows. Penelope can then be seen snorting, wagged her tail and then backing up as the gator swims away with the bagel in its mouth.
Miller told WPBF that her yard had been flooded from recent heavy rain and that the gator may have come from a nearby canal.
She didn't immediately respond to ABC News' calls for additional comment on the close encounter.
One thing's for sure, thought, Penelope is lucky the gator chose the bagel rather than her.
