Reporter: Watch these trappers in central Florida pull a nine-foot alligator from a pond. It thrashes in the murky water. Look closely and you see the gator release all it took from its victim -- a white sneaker left bobbing in the water. Attack at big cypress boulevard. Be advised that he's actively getting bitten. Reporter: Florida fish and wildlife says an 85-year-old man was bitten on the foot by this alligator behind his home at a retirement community. That man taken to the hospital. A close call, after two deadly alligator attacks over the summer. A Florida woman walking her dogs was dragged into a lake and and another woman walking her dog near a lagoon in Hilton head, South Carolina, was killed after an eight-foot alligator pulled her under water.
