A Florida man is recovering after an alligator attack.

FOX's Tom Graham has more:

Investigators say a 58-year-old Sumter County man remains hospitalized an Ocala Regional after an eight-foot alligator sunk its teeth into his right leg:

(Weber) "The circumstances involving how they came into contact with each other is still investigation, we're not exactly sure what took place."

That's Chad Weber of Florida Fish and Wildlife. Trappers have since killed the reptile.

The attack comes about a week after a two-year-old was killed at nearby Disney World after a gator pulled the toddler into a lagoon, drowning the boy.
