A man is recovering after being bit by an alligator at the Chassahowitzka River Campground, according to Citrus County dispatch.

The incident happened about 5 p.m. while the man was swimming in the river. A state-licensed gator hunter was called in to find the gator.

The victim, who was transported to a hospital, has not been identified.

Another alligator biting incident also was in the news over the weekend.

In Everglades City, an airboat captain whose hand was bitten off by a 9-foot alligator last month was charged Friday with feeding the animal.

Wallace Weatherholt, 63, posted a $1,000 bond and received a court date of Aug. 22 on a charge of unlawful feeding of an alligator.

According to the Fort Myers News-Press, Weatherholt was attacked on June 12 as he was giving an Indiana family a tour of the Everglades. The family said Weatherholt hung a fish over the wide of the boat and had his hand at the water's surface when the alligator attacked.

Wildlife officers tracked and euthanized the gator. Weatherholt's hand was found but could not be reattached.

Feeding an alligator is a second-degree misdemeanor.
