Authorities: Evidence shows gator bit, probably killed Florida woman

Authorities: Evidence shows gator bit, probably killed Florida woman

The alligator is still being investigated, and Davie police haven't said if they believe that is the gator is responsible or for the wounds on the dog or if the arm belongs to the missing woman.

According to Local 10 News, the witness told police he saw the woman walking her two dogs on the path around the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park.

While the man did not actually see the alligator attacking the woman, alligators are known to live in the lakes in the park, reports said.

Davie police have not released the name of the woman but friends who came to the park have identified her as 46-year-old Shizuka Matsuki of Plantation, WSVN and the Sun-Sentinel have reported.

According to witnesses, the woman's dogs won't leave the pond.

Sandra said, "We had over a year and a half to just really get to know each other and just fall in love with each other". I think we all got stupid and giddy every time she walked on set. "And that was a hard pill to swallow".

"After an initial necropsy, evidence was found that indicates that the victim of this incident was bitten by the alligator that was captured earlier today", FWC spokesman Robert Klepper said.

Trappers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are at the scene, looking for the alligator. The witness called police when he couldn't find the woman, Gallinal said.

Ramsaran noted that there are many alligators in this lake but said there aren't signs warning the public that these animals are in the area.

While alligator attacks are uncommon, they are not unheard of. Divers found his body at the bottom of the pond, and two gators - one 9 feet, 4 inches long, the other 7 feet, 6 inches long - were removed from the pond. From 1948 to 2017, the commission has documented 401 people bitten by alligators, including 24 fatalities.

Another resident said a ranger once told her about the dangers of walking near the lake.
