Police: Witness saw gator drag woman into Florida lake

Woman is dragged into a Florida lake by an alligator while out walking her dogs

- Authorities on Friday captured an alligator in a Florida pond after a witness' report led police to believe the animal may have dragged a woman into the water. The witness told police the woman was gone the next time she looked but the dogs were still there, WSVN reported. Another woman said that her poodle vanished near the lake on Christmas and she suspected the dog had been eaten. Two dogs were found on the scene, and one of the dogs was injured, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a statement.

"We can't call the dive team in until they capture the 'gator", Engle said.

Also investigating were officers from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The park, which is surrounded by homes and is popular for picnics and dog-walking, was closed following the incident. The missing woman's dogs are now in custody of Broward County Animal Care and Adoption. Witnesses have spotted an alligator in the water and one of the woman's dogs had fresh wounds.
