Body found after gator pulls woman into south Florida lake

Woman is dragged into a Florida lake by an alligator while out walking her dogs

This is a developing story, and we'll update it when more information is available.

Authorities identified the woman who was attacked by the alligator as Shizuka Matsuki, 46.

Some neighbors have complained about the alligators at the park in the 5600 block of Southwest 52nd Street.

The park is near Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Miami.

"I think she stopped walking her dogs behind our house when one of our neighbor's dogs was taken by a alligator", Fischer wrote in a Facebook post.

Edwin Gomez is at the park almost every day.

Authorities warn that gators are "opportunistic feeders", meaning that they will generally snap onto anything that gets near them.

Matsuki's body was recovered from the lake just before 10 p.m. Friday.

Search teams have found the body of a woman who was killed by an alligator in Florida. By the time he got over to where she was, her dogs could be seen barking at the pond.

Broward County Animal Care officers, the Broward medical examiner, and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission were all at the scene.

Trappers have spotted an alligator in the pond that is about 12 feet long and were watching it, Gallinal said.

Though the arm was found inside this gator, it is still not clear if this animal is responsible for Matsuki's death. The alligator was euthanized.

Authorities closed the park Friday. "So you're not shocked this happened, not at all, but heartbreaking", Ramasaran said. The husband also asked Borrelli to break the news to their son, who is in his 20s and lives in NY. One woman said she let her 13-year-old poodle out in the backyard around Christmastime. The Isla del Sol Homeowners Association sent out a memo notifying residents that wildlife encounters were common in Florida - and to be careful. Some residents said they had lost pets that wandered too close to the lake. I'm out here all the time with my kids, my husband.

Neighbours told local media that they have seen children swimming in the lakes. An alligator that was 9 feet, 6 inches long that attacked her was caught and destroyed, according to the state.

"That gator was there in a heartbeat", she told the Sun Sentinel. An alligator was removed from the lake earlier in the day with her arm in its stomach.
