Gator feeding frenzy caught on tape

GEORGIA Earlier this month, fisherman Ray Cason headed out on his boat at the Stephen C. Foster State Park in the Okefenokee Swamp for a fresh catch -- but clearly, the gators got there first.

So instead of his fishing rod, Cason grabbed his camera and caught the feeding frenzy over mudfish, also known as bowfin.

A manager at the southeast Georgia park says the gators went their separate ways eventually.

A state wildlife biologist says this kind of cooperative feeding -- in which the gators hunt together as a group -- only happens once every three or four years.
