Wildlife officials say an alligator has bitten the hand off an airboat captain in southwest Florida.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials say
wildlife officers tracked the alligator after the attack Tuesday
afternoon in Everglades City.
Commission spokeswoman Carli Segelson said the hand was pulled from the alligator's stomach and taken to the hospital where the captain was being treated.
Wildlife officials say the alligator was euthanized.
No additional details about the attack were immediately
available. The captain was not identified.
