    (Published Monday, Nov. 11, 2019)

    Authorities in Florida have identified a man they say was hunting hogs when he was attacked by an alligator.

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on Sunday said 46-year-old James G. Boyce, of Palm Beach Gardens, suffered a "substantial" bite to his leg while hunting in a wildlife management area on Saturday.

     

     

    Martin County sheriff's spokeswoman Christine Christofek Weiss told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that the alligator was reported to be about 10 feet long. The Palm Beach Post reports the sheriff's office says that another man pulled him to safety in a swamp buggy and they alerted authorities. He was airlifted to a hospital.

    Terisa Boyce told the newspaper that her husband was in stable condition as of late Sunday.
