Authorities Identify Woman Bitten By Alligator

Alligator kills woman who was walking her dogs by the pond

Trappers who captured a gator that they believe dragged a woman into a lake while she was walking her dogs said Friday afternoon.

The clue as to who the woman was came from the only auto parked at the park. One of her dogs got bit by the gator, ' Davie Police Maj.

Locals have told United States media outlets that the area is not safe - with some claiming there are numerous alligators in the lake.

Alligators usually choose their prey based on its availability and how easily it can be overpowered. While they are common today, over-hunting nearly drove American alligators to extinction in the 1950's.

In a well-publicized attack in June 2016, a 2-year-old boy died after an alligator pulled him into a lagoon near a Walt Disney World hotel.

A man saw her walking her dogs there, and then minutes later saw the dogs running loose, one of them injured, reported WPLG, a local ABC affiliate. Neighbors say they often see people walking their dogs around the lakes and have even seen kids go swimming in them.

Residents in the area said that alligators were known to be in the water, and they wouldn't let their dogs walk without a leash because of this.

Florida is teeming with more than 1 million gators, but only a dozen or so bites are recorded each year, according to statistics from the FWC.

Notice of bridling heartache came on Friday when a necropsy of a captured alligator in Silver Lakes Rotary nature park revealed a human arm in the reptile's stomach.

"Her dogs won't leave the pond".

"Any body of water in Florida, you've got to know at some point or another there's an alligator". They sabotaged traps set to catch it, she said. I'm out here all the time with my kids and my husband.

Officers continued to search for the woman's body, identified by a family friend as Matsuki, in the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park, at 5695 S.W. 52nd Ave. "I don't think he could really hide". His body was found intact in the pond a few days later. At least 24 of those incidents resulted in fatalities, according to the report. Broward County Animal Control and Adoption Agency said that they had taken custody of the dogs.
