PALMETTO, Fla - A retired St. Petersburg Police dog took on an alligator recently and is expected to be okay.
The K-9 was running around his owner's yard when he ventured into some bushes and the alligator bit his leg. The dog was able to get away and was quickly bandaged up.
Trappers were able to catch the gator and remove it from the water. The gator was measured at more than eight feet long.
