Alligator suspected of dragging woman into pond

Police in Broward County are looking for a woman who they believe was dragged into a lake by an alligator while walking her dogs on Friday. News media earlier reported a caller told police he saw a gator drag a woman into the water as she was walking her dogs. The witness told police the woman was gone the next time she looked, but the dogs were still there, the TV station said. Dale Engle told the newspaper.

Gallinal said trappers had seen a 12-foot (3.5-meter) alligator and residents said they've also noticed a large gator in the area recently.

Authorities closed the park Friday. An alligator that was 9 feet, 6 inches long that attacked her was caught and destroyed, according to the state.

The body of a missing Florida woman, who is believed to have died after she was bitten by an alligator, has been found, authorities said. The husband also asked Borrelli to break the news to their son, who is in his 20s and lives in NY.

"Human remains" were retrieved from the animal, according to the Miami Herald, citing authorities.

Three trappers had been hired to try to capture the animal over the last two years but had failed to do so, according to the newspaper. From 1948 to 2017, 401 unprovoked bite incidents have occurred in Florida with 24 of these proving fatal.

In 2016, a 2-year-old boy, Lane Graves, was snatched by a gator as he played at a Disney World resort.
