Florida Teen Attacked By 9-Foot Alligator


A 14-year-old boy is recovering after being attacked by a 9-foot alligator at a pond in central Florida.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) said the alligator bit the boy on his hand and leg in Charlotte County Tuesday afternoon.

The boy went to the hospital for treatment.

A trapper captured and removed the gator, which measured 9-feet, 9-inches long.

If there is a nuisance alligator in your neighborhood, call 866-FWC-GATOR. The FWC also has information online about living with gators in Florida.
