A 9-foot alligator bit a man on his left knee, officials saidA man was bitten and dragged by an alligator when he attempted to retrieve his golf ball from the water in Winter Haven, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.
Albert Miller, 75, is recovering from his injuries after an alligator lunged out of a pond, bit his left knee and dragged him into the water on April 25, the release said.
He lifted me up three feet and slammed me down, Miller told The Ledger, referring to the nine-foot alligator.
Millers friends, who were playing golf with him at a country club, ran toward Miller and were able to pull him out of the water as the alligator thrashed around, The Ledger reported.
Miller was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries, the report said.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said they quickly caught the alligator.
“Liz” only needs a .22 iron!
I don’t blame the gator. I’m protective of my golf balls, too.
I love grammar. ;o)
...or the lack thereof.
LOL... as usual, a little parsing goes a long way.
I was told that alligators don't eat their (human, at least) prey when they catch and conquer them. They drown them and stuff them in their lair, then snack on them at leisure.
You get used to that reading MSM news.
I’ve heard that too. I have no desire to find out firsthand.
