NAKHON PATHOM, THAILAND - JANUARY 27: Crocodiles (Crocodylus sp.) rest inside a concrete pond, while being raised for meat and skin at a farm on January 27, 2022 in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand. The price of pork, a substantial part of many peoples' diet in Thailand, has soared due to supply shortages, leading to a boom in alternative sources of protein. Crocodile meat, which enjoyed a niche among diners, has started rapidly rising in popularity as its price point becomes competitive, local media reported.

An elderly woman in Florida is dead after she was attacked by a pair of alligators, authorities say.

The incident occurred Friday at an Englewood golf course, where witnesses reported seeing the unidentified woman fall into a pond, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office. After noticing she was “struggling to stay afloat,” the witnesses began rushing over to help her — only to see two alligators converge on her, sheriff’s officials say. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The gators — which have since been removed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission — measured nearly eight and nine feet long, according to Commission officials.
