'Swamp People': The Boys Struggle To Bring In Two Alligators At Once (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It's a dangerous enough job when hunting one alligator at a time. On the latest "Swamp People" (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History), Austyn and Blake were startled to find two alligators hooked on the lines on one tree. That comes to about 1,000 pounds of thrashing teeth and muscle.

The line wasn't prepared to handle that kind of strain, threatening to break, and the guys weren't quite sure at first what their best approach was as the two behemoths were flailing about against one another, creating even more potential for uncertainty and injury.

Finally, they managed to shoot one of the creatures, which made taking out the other one a matter of routine, albeit still incredibly dangerous. Still, for all the drama, getting two gators for the price of one is surely worth it every time.

Follow "Swamp People" every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on History.
