    Wildlife officials say a worker at a central Florida ecotourism attraction was injured in an alligator attack.

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reports that 46-year-old Sergio Hernandez was removing plants in a pond at Forever Florida in Osceola County last week when an alligator attacked. Officials say the animal took a chunk out of Hernandez's leg, an injury that required surgery.

    Trappers responded and removed two alligators, one measuring 11 feet and another measuring 8 feet.

    Forever Florida offers a zip line course, camping and horseback riding.

    WKMG-TV reports that the alligator that attacked Hernandez was not in the attraction's care.
