At 3:45 P.M. on Thursday, The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) received a call about an alligator attack in Lake Thonotosassa in Florida. A man who was swimming in the lake had been bitten in the face by an alligator at a popular fishing area.

According to CNN, the FWC immediately dispatched a contracted nuisance alligator trapper to the gator’s last known location, and has yet to be found. Meanwhile, the 34 year old was transported by The Hillsborough County Fire Rescue to a nearby hospital, where he is still being treated for his injuries.

Locals are now being encouraged by state officials to be cautious about swimming in the alligator infested waters after this incident made Florida’s second alligator attack within the week.
