  • The lake at the nature park is sprawling and one of many. Earlier this week another local reported seeing a'7ft alligator swimming in

Matsuki's body was recovered from the lake just before 10 p.m. Friday. Earlier news media reports indicated the witness reported seeing the gator drag the woman into the water.

A 12-foot, 6-inch alligator was removed from the lake Friday afternoon and officials performed a necropsy, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a statement.

A family friend who went to the park during the search for Matsuki said her husband was in Chicago and had been warned by him to stay away because of the gator. Search teams were then able to enter the lake and locate Matsuki's body.

"One of her dogs got bit by the gator", Engle said. A passerby saw her with the dogs initially but a short while later only saw the dogs barking at the water's edge and called police. After cutting open the reptile, they found an arm that was later confirmed to have belonged to Shizuka Matsuki, 47, who was last seen walking her dogs near a lake.

Residents told the Sun-Sentinel they have complained about alligators at the park.

Davie police responded to the scene after a witness reported seeing the woman attacked by an alligator and dragged into the lake off of Southwest 52nd Street.

Before divers could go into the water to look for the woman - who remains missing - they had to capture the beastly reptile which was filmed swimming ominously through the dark water not long after the alarm was raised.

Between 1948 and 2017, 401 people were bitten by alligators, including 24 fatalities, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission data.

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

Dale Engle told the Sun Sentinel that the womans dogs wouldnt leave the pond.

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.

An animal trapper has spotted a gator in the water and estimated its size at 12 feet, CBS4 reported.

"He doesn't even know if she's still alive or not", the man said. They didn't live in the neighborhood, but often liked to find new places to walk their dogs and were often seen in the area. Further, they're most active during mating season, which is May and June.
