Broward victim of alligator attack is identified

Both dogs were taken to Broward County Animal and Care and Adoption.

The victim's brother was at the scene visibly distraught and awaiting answers. An arm and other body parts were found in the alligator. Local broadcaster WPLG reported that a human arm was found inside the animal.

The 12ft (3.5 metre) alligator has been captured following the woman's disappearance from near a Florida lake on Friday.

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

The man "went to the area where he thought that they had been walking, and he immediately spotted an alligator", said Detective Viviana Gallinal.

Wildlife commission officers were expected to remain at the park until Matsuki's body is found. "This tragedy is heartbreaking for everyone involved, and our honest condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim at this time".

Sharon Estupinan said a park ranger warned her to walk her dogs farther away from the water's edge after she saw a 10-foot gator in the pond three days ago. Residents said they often saw her walking them in the area.

Alligators. Scary. No lingering doubts should be there to avoid your relaxing plans- especially when it involves walking your dog by the side of a lake notorious for alligators.

Heather Porrata, who lives nearby, said that every Floridian knows to be on the lookout for gators near ponds, lakes, and streams. I'm out here all the time with my kids, my husband. An alligator that was 9 feet, 6 inches long that attacked her was caught and destroyed, according to the state. "So you're not shocked this happened, not at all, but heartbreaking", Ramasaran said.

That's when human remains were found inside the gator, authorities said.

"The FWC believes that the victim is deceased and we will continue recovery efforts on the lake with local authorities".

There have been 401 unprovoked alligator bites between 1948 and 2017, the commission said, and of those 24 resulted in fatalities.

In 2016, a 2-year-old boy, Lane Graves, was snatched by a gator as he played at a Disney World resort. Authorities located Matsuki's body a short time later, the FWC announced Saturday on Twitter.
