These stories keep piling up…this one involves a 58-year-old Ocala man that was attacked by an 8’9″ alligator. Unlike the last alligator attack we covered that ended in a toddler’s death at Disney, this man only suffered injuries to his leg and made it to the hospital in time.
Apparently this guy shot the gator twice with a handgun since it was causing trouble on his land. The gator SURVIVED THE SHOTS and proceeded to attack. The gator was trapped and put down by authorities.
