Cat vs. Alligator: Who would you put your money on?

In this video taken by a Canadian who was visiting a Louisiana alligator tourist destination in the Bayou, a small house cat decides to take on an alligator.

Here's some back up information so you can suss out the odds:

Large alligators subsist on birds and small mammals like raccoons. They are shy and will normally retreat into the water if approached by a human, unless cornered. South Carolina Parks recommends keeping pets, especially dogs, away from water in alligators' habitats, as they are known to attack and kill such companions.

So what do you think? Who will win this epic battle?

(Don't worry, the video is free of gore!)
