Gators go into a feeding frenzy in southeast GA

NEAR FARGO, GA (CNN) –  How would you like to be surrounded by 300 hungry alligators?

Earlier this month, fisherman Ray Cason headed out on his boat at the Stephen C. Foster State Park in the Okefenokee swamp for a fresh catch -- but clearly, the gators got there first.

Cason grabbed his camera and caught the feeding frenzy over mudfish, also known as bowfin. Then he went back the next morning to capture more of it on video.

A manager at the southeast Georgia park says the gators went their separate ways later that second morning.

A state wildlife biologist says this kind of cooperative feeding -- in which the gators hunt together as a group -- only happens once every three or four years.
