Lake where woman found dead known for alligators

Human Arm Found Inside Alligator That Attacked Missing Florida Woman

Human Arm Found Inside Alligator That Attacked Missing Florida Woman

The email from the Isla de Sol Homeowners Association in Plantation, Florida, notified residents that an alligator had been trapped at a resident's front door.

Witnesses noticed that something had gone awry after they saw one of Matsuki's dogs barking at the edge of the water. Later an initial necropsy by the officials indicated the presence of human remains in the system confirming the speculations.

Authorities located her body a short time later, the FWC announced on Twitter.

"A 12-foot, 6-inch alligator was removed from the lake by an FWC-contracted trapper".

Still, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission warned people not to jump to conclusions about what had happened on the side of the pond until they could investigate.

A Florida woman is believed to be dead after an alligator attack in Davie, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

It is not known if Matsuki received the warning.

The dogs didn't want to leave the lake and were being cared for by Broward County Animal Care and Adoption, WSVN said.

"It's not uncommon for her to go there", Limia said. He saw them occasionally when he was fishing in the neighborhood.

One thing hampering the search is divers can't go into the water until the alligator is captured, Engle said.

Local residents also told the newspaper that they had complained about alligators in the park, with some even explaining that they had lost pets that wandered too close to the lake.

The likelihood of a Florida resident being seriously injured during an unprovoked alligator incident in the state is only 1 in 3.2 million, according to the wildlife commission.
