NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — A 10-foot alligator attacked a horse in Pasco County last week.
State wildlife trappers are using bait to try and catch the gator.
Mike Santo, the horse's owner, said the gator took a gash out of his horse's leg.
The attack happened on a pasture in New Port Richey. The horse was cooling off in a pond.
"There's turtles, bass, birds, rabbits, otter, there's plenty for an alligator to eat and he picked a horse," said Mike Santos.
