"A man used a small alligator as a "weapon" during a fight at Praia da Macumba, in the west side of Rio de Janeiro. The images of the confusion went viral on social networks.
In the video it is possible to see a man holding the reptile and trying to make it bite another man, with whom he had a falling out.
A lifeguard tries to separate the two to prevent those involved and the alligator from getting hurt. A dog that was on the beach also participated in the scene.
The confusion only ended after a fire team was called to the scene.
They captured the alligator and released it in the city's Municipal Park natural habitat of the reptile.
The suspicion is that the baby has ended up on the beach after the flooding of the channels that occurs on rainy days.
So far the identity of the men has not been revealed."
