On "Swamp People" (Thu., 9 p.m. ET on History) R.J. Molinere, Jr. and his son Jay Paul were battling high winds in their air boat when they spotted a dead alligator in the bayou.

Jay Paul jumped into the water to grab it by the leg and pull it onto the boat, but it was too heavy. As R.J. went to help him they both realized that the alligator was only mostly dead.

"Move out the way," said R.J. "let me do my thing. Here, hold your gun. Gimme my department, dude." The hunters eventually shot and killed the alligator without any injury to themselves.

"Swamp People" continues on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET on History.
