A retired Palmetto, Florida police dog survived an alligator attack. Owner Chris Leister said he was taking down a basketball hoop when he heard a tussle by the water behind his home home. Arek emerged from bushes with a rip and tear on his paw. It turns out he was bitten by what neighbors have described as a 9-foot alligator. Trappers told Leister that Arek must have bitten the alligator back because one that big would not have let go easily.
