A Florida school teacher pulled his pet dog from the jaws a 6-foot long alligator. Terry Weaver is a high school teacher in Lee County, Fla. He said his Jack Russell terrier, Scooter, is his best friend. Scooter went for a swim in a canal close to their home and almost became dinner for the gator. Weaver jumped on the alligator's back and managed to wrestle Scooter away from the reptile. Scooter (who ended up with a few stitches) and Weaver are fine, but both will probably stay out of canals now.
