Woman Killed by Alligator After Community Warned of Animal

Woman Killed by Alligator After Community Warned of Animal”

Matsuki's body was found Friday in a lake in Davie, Florida, hours after she had gone missing at a park about eight miles from her neighborhood.

Florida wildlife officials say the lake where a 47-year-old woman was found dead from an apparent alligator attack has been the subject of multiple reports of gator activity.

The alert was sent out after authorities trapped a 6-foot alligator near a resident's front door, the South Florida Sun-Sentinal reported.

"Her dogs won't leave the pond", Davie Police Maj.

Neighbors at the gated Isla del Sol community in Plantation, where Matsuki lived, told the Miami Herald she was a "soccer mom" whom they frequently saw walking her dogs in the morning while wearing workout gear.

According to ABC Local 10 News, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission ordered a necropsy, or animal autopsy, on a 12-and-a-half foot alligator caught from Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park. A short time later, he said, he saw the dogs wandering alone.

"It's not uncommon for her to go there", Limia said.

"We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Matsuki", conservation commission spokesman Rob Klepper said in a statement. "The FWC will be conducting a thorough investigation into this incident", he said.

Her body was recovered the next day.

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

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

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.

A 2-year-old boy was killed by an alligator at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in 2016.
