It wasn't a glass slipper, but rather a tennis shoe that confirmed for wildlife workers in Florida that they had found their dangerous gator. The alligator, they say, had bitten an 85-year-old man at a country club in Lakeland. The man, who is expected to be all right, was taken to the hospital for treatment while trappers went on the hunt for the ten-foot gator. They knew they'd connected with the right critter because he still had the man's white sneaker in his mouth.
