Trappers got the gator shortly afterward.

An elderly Florida woman was killed by an alligator during an attack at a lake’s edge near Fort Pierce over the weekend. Officers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission responded to a report of an alligator attack at a retirement community yesterday. When they arrived, they found the body of the victim, an 85-year-old woman who had been walking her dog. Witnesses to the attack told investigators that the woman was walking her dog along the water’s edge when a large alligator emerged from the water and attacked the woman’s dog. The woman tried to save the dog by wrestling it away from the gator, but she was bitten during the incident. By the time rescuers arrived, the woman had died.
A spokesperson with said alligators are literally everywhere these days, and their population is the highest it’s ever been. He even added that alligators can be in swimming pools or any body of water. Trappers arrived on the scene shortly after the attack and pulled the 11-foot beast from the water. Video of the capture is below. Although attacks by alligators on humans are rare, it pays to know when and where they will most likely be hiding out. Whenever you see an alligator, avoid it and NEVER feed it. If you see a nuisance alligator, report it immediately to the Fish and Wildflife Commission at 888-392-4286. Source:

Hungry? You Will Be After This List!

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
