Friends and family of a woman believed to have been dragged by an alligator, wait for words on her. Police say the woman was walking her dogs near the pond in the 5600 block of Southwest 52nd Street, Davie. Police therefore are operating under the theory that the woman was grabbed by a gator.

A witness says he saw the woman walking her two dogs and later saw the dogs barking near the water, but did not see the woman again. The dogs didn't want to leave the lake and were being cared for by Broward County Animal Care and Adoption, WSVN said.

The victim's brother was at the scene visibly distraught and awaiting answers. They found body parts inside the reptile. Now, hours later, park rangers have reportedly captured the animal, according to Sun Sentinel.

"I saw the gator yesterday, it responds in a natural way".

Trappers caught the suspect alligator Friday afternoon and found the human arm inside its stomach, officials said.

"She was able to pry the alligator's mouth open and remove her leg", a spokeswoman for the commission said at the time. You can see them. They're at least 8-, 9-foot alligators. She was walking her dogs near the water when she was pulled in. "The ranger has told me be careful". And although no one knows for certain why, a string of alligator spottings and an attack in the area certainly put the neighborhood on alert. "At this time we believe the victim is deceased and we will continue the search until morning", FWC Officer Ronald Washington said. The commission is aware of 401 people bitten between 1948 and 2017, including 27 killed, the report said.
