'Swamp People' Dog

Sayin' I'm Out for Good

Is a Croc!

10/1/2011 2:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Swamp People Dog
The loveable gator hunting dog from "Swamp People" is back in action after a heart scare.

Tyler was rushed to a vet back in January after a heart scare.  The dog is a fixture on the boat during gator hunts, but he was sidelined after his medical emergency. 

The good news -- Tyler is back in action.

The bad news -- gator season sucks, because of Tropical Storm Lee, which is wreaking havoc in Louisiana because it heats up and lowers water levels, making it hard for gators to swim and for hunters to catch them.

These people are such slimebags. I ******* HATE this show and all who go with it. All they do is kill animals. **** them and anybody who puts them on the air.

The reason they kill the gators is so the gators do not kill people and small children using the water ways. To me that seems a little more important than some gators whose meat is awesome battered and fried!!

Just to let ya know, nowhere did anyone ever say he had heartworms...they said heart scare. People that commented are the ones on website forums like this who said he probably had heartworms.....Bruce has never said that. /off soap box
