LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — An elderly man was attacked by an alligator in Florida but didn’t have serious injuries.
Polk County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Brian Bruchey says the alligator attacked the man’s foot near a lake in Lakeland, Florida on Monday.
Bruchey says the man was taken to a hospital as a precautionary measure.
Officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were searching for the alligator at the lake in a retirement community.
