Gator Bites North Fla. Man Working On Dock

LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP) — An alligator bit a man on the leg while he was working on a dock at Lake Jeffery in north Florida.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokeswoman Karen Parker told the Gainesville Sun ( ) the incident happened Thursday afternoon.

The man was bitten on the leg. Parker says she doesn’t know the extent of the man’s injuries.
