SEVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A central Florida alligator hunter has been released from the hospital after having been attacked by an alligator.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office announced Sunday that Kemp Galleneau is recovering after he was bitten on the leg that morning at the Pine Island Resort campground in Seville.

Several witnesses have told WFTV-TV that Galleneau fell in the water while trying to harpoon the gator. Officials say the hunter had a legal tag for the reptile.

The alligator was caught and killed by a trapper.
