CLEARWATER, Fla. (WKRC) - A Florida man was attacked by an alligator for a rather dumb reason, according to a story by WFLA.

The 11-foot gator came after the man after he went into a pond in search of a disc golf disc.

Witnesses believe the man retrieves wayward discs in an attempt to resell them to the disc golfers.

Three witnesses ran to the man when they heard him screaming and tried to pull him out of the water. It resulted in a game of tug of war with the gator.

One of the witnesses said the guy stabbed the gator in the eye, leaving one of its eyes "kind of hanging out".

The victim was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
