Officials find body of woman attacked by gator in Florida

DAVIE, FL (RNN) - Police are searching for a woman after an alligator reportedly dragged her into a pond on Friday morning.

The last deadly gator attack in South Florida happened 12 years ago when a 28-year-old woman was attacked while jogging along a path in Sunrise.

The dogs have been turned over to animal control.

The victim's brother was at the scene visibly distraught and awaiting answers. Another woman said that her poodle vanished near the lake on Christmas and she suspected the dog had been eaten. He hadn't heard of any sabotaged traps or interference in capturing the alligator.

An alligator reached viral stardom on Thursday when he tried to escape his handlers with his hands tied behind his back-and head-butted a trapper unconscious in the process.

Meanwhile, "her dogs won't leave the pond", Engle said. Her son threw bread into the water for the fish, and the alligator got the bread.
