Crocodile attack: Video of man attacked at Florida Zoo | Daily Star

Authorities say a man was found injured after breaking into a Florida zoo and jumping into a crocodile enclosure.

Police said Hatfield "damaged numerous exhibits and statues around the complex", causing more than $5,000 in damage. Officers said they found the man, who said he'd been bitten by a wild alligator.

Law enforcement received a call Tuesday morning about a suspicious person in boxer shorts hiding in bushes, News 4 Jax reported. Hatfield then scrambles out of water, leaving behind a trail of blood.

Then came the calls to police that solved the mystery, and led to the arrest of a 23-year-old Green Cove Springs man charged with burglary and criminal mischief, according to the St. Augustine Police Department. "In our 125-year history, this is the first time anyone has tried to go swimming with the crocodiles". As captured on surveillance video, one of the crocodiles attacked the man's leg. But when he sits on the bank of the pool, the "crocodile locks onto his left foot".

The man was taken to hospital for treatment before being taken into police custody.

"I would think he's on some sort of drugs", Bruggen said. He was later transported to the hospital, the report stated. He was arrested and is being held without bond.
