The woman attacked last week and partially eaten by an alligator has been identified as Shizuka Matsuki, 47, of Plantation, FL.
Matsuki was walking two of her dogs in Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park when a witness saw the gator drag Matsuki into the water. The witness called police, but the body and the alligator were not immediately found.
The gator was trapped and removed from the lake in Davie, said the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission.
In an official statement, Florida FWC wrote: “A 12-foot, 6-inch alligator was removed from the lake by an FWC contracted trapper. After an initial necropsy, evidence was found that indicates that the victim of this incident was bitten by the alligator that was captured earlier today.”
