Florida Gator Chomps Patrol Car
A ten foot alligator took a serious bite out of a patrol car responding to a nuisance gator report. Ocala.com has a write up and video on the gator and its powerful bite. Apparently the responding officer needed to back up the vehicle in order to release the gator from the vehicle.
Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Todd Kelly said Borrero was waiting for a licensed trapper under contract with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to remove the alligator when it took a bite out of the patrol car. “It may have come from Paynes Prairie — we really don’t know,” Kelly said, “but that seems like the most likely location.”
