An 11-foot alligator that bit a man who was hunting Saturday night in Brevard nearly pulled the man off a boat and into the water, according to Florida wildlife officials. Justin Perchalski was legally hunting alligators in the Three Forks Marsh conservation area around 8:30 p.m. when he reached down to get a new grip on the hand line as an alligator was hooked alongside the boat, and the reptile bit his right wrist. The gator tried to pull Perchalski into the water, but the three other watercraft occupants kept him on board. He was taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center and then flown to Orlando Regional Medical Center.
