A heroic Security officer faced off against something terrifying while on Patrol with his dog.

South Africa has a unique mix of wildlife and people, with us sharing our living spaces with animals in many cases. It's the reason why so many tourists love visiting our Country. However while it does bring a lot of money through tourism, living close to wild animals can lead to dangerous situations. Recently a security found himself in one of these situations and had to protect his companion. Here are all the details.

The Wild animal and the pet :

A RUSA (Reaction Unit South Africa) officer found himself in a scary situation, where he had to face of against a terrifying animals recently. The man was acting as a security officer for a construction site in Ballito KZN, when a large Crocodile tried to attack his patrol dog.

The man knew he had to take action quickly in order to protect his companion from the alligator. He fended it off using a stick and made it flee the scene, allegedly into the uthongathi river. He later called for backup and his fellow officers were dispatched to his location. Luckily his companion, nor him, were injured in the confrontation.

The Real danger he was in :

Unfortunately the man was in serious danger as this situation was unfolding. Crocodiles kill hundreds of people each year, because of there ability to attack before a person can react to their presence.

Regardless of this, the officer stood his ground and protected his companion in a situation where many of us would run away, and for that I commend him.

If you ever find yourself in a situation where you are facing a crocodile, please run away immediately. What do you think of these observations, tell me in the comments section and follow for more lifestyle news as it happens.
