An alligator has bitten an employee at a tourist attraction in western South Dakota's Black Hills.
The man was taken to Rapid City Regional Hospital Saturday afternoon. The man is an employee who works with the alligator during one of three daily shows put on by Reptile Gardens.
Clint Hubbeling, assistant manager of Reptile Gardens, told the newspaper the bite was nothing too serious.
The Pennington County Sheriff's Department says 26-year-old man was jumping on the alligator's back during a show when the reptile turned its head and bit the man's arm.
