(FOX NEWS) – An Everglades alligator owes its life to a Florida trapper after it was rescued from the suffocating clutches of a 10-foot python.

Mike Kimmel, the owner of Martin County Trapping and Removals and Martin County Wildlife Rescue, came across the massive python in the dark night of the Everglades already wrapped around a 4-foot alligator this weekend.

In a video posted to his Facebook page, Kimmel was seen wrangling the python from the bushes and held it up until it dropped the smaller alligator, which quickly scampered away.

The freed alligator has some company; Kimmel told Fox News it was the third he’s saved from a python in the past year.

Kimmel has been contracted by the South Florida Water Management District for about a year, tasked with hunting and removing pythons.
