The cyclist was attacked in Halpatiokee Nature Park in Florida. The name of the place in the language of the Seminoles, ie in the area of the original Indian tribe, means aptly “water alligator”. The site is famous for these reptiles, and experts warn that they are now sitting on eggs.
Biker unhappily did not choose a turn and slipped on the narrow hiking trail and around. After falling for two meters, he ended up in the water, where, unfortunately, a pretty tall female (2.7 m, 80 kg) was just picking up. She did not hesitate and bit the uninvited guest.
The cyclist suffered serious injuries to his leg, especially to his thigh. Fortunately, nearby witness Charlie Shannon had just walked the dog and rushed to the aid of the man in need. The wounded clung to his roots and tried to scramble back on the way. The dogman pulled it out with the help of other witnesses.
“It wasn’t easy to get him up at all,” he said, according to the website New York Post Shannon. When he laid him on the ground, they used a leash on the dog as an emergency strangling heavily bleeding legs. Then paramedics came for him.
According to experts, the cyclist probably came across a female near the nest, where her eggs are waiting to hatch. No wonder, then, that she showed a little more aggression than usual in trying to protect them. The alligator’s park administration will move elsewhere, and if her eggs are found, they will visit her. Last year, alligators in Florida bit 12 people, none of the attacks were fatal.
