Lake County, Fla.(WOFL)-A Lake County Sheriff's cadet was bitten by a 4 ft. alligator while participating in a training course on how to subdue the reptiles on Monday.

The training was held in two parts. The first part was in a classroom and the second part was outside the training facility with a real, live alligator. Officials said one of the cadets tripped over the reptile and was bitten on the hand.  

A Florida Fish and Wildlife instructor was forced to shoot and kill the gator. The cadet was taken to the hospital and is expected to fully recover.
