Alligator Attacks Canoer
Tampa, FL - August 8, 2014
A woman was reportedly attacked Thursday by an alligator at John B. Sargeant Park on the Hillsborough River in Florida.
Initial reports indicate two women visiting from Ohio were canoeing on the Hillsborough River around 1:45 p.m. when a 6-foot gator jumped out of the water and bit one of the women in a thigh and calf. The animal then went back into the water. The other woman called 911.
The victim was taken to Tampa General Hospital with non-life-threatening injures. Trappers are expected to head to the area in an effort to track and capture the offending reptile.
