Alligator bites a man in the leg

One Sumter County resident wanted a piece of another Sumter County resident Tuesday night. The latter: a 58-year-old man. The former: an 8.5 to 9-foot alligator.

The gator got his piece, according to the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. The confrontation on CR-311 (that’s a road) in Bushnell ended with the man suffering injuries to his right leg. He was airlifted to Ocala Regional Hospital.
