Meanwhile, an 85-year-old woman from Florida in America died after being attacked by a crocodile while walking with her dog. The woman was walking her dog near a pond near the retirement community when the attack took place.
According to a CNN media report, officials from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call about an alligator attack in St. Lucie, Florida.
An FWC spokesperson said the woman was with her dog at the time of the incident, but the dog survived the incident, but its whereabouts and current condition are unknown. According to media reports, the woman was walking with the dog when a crocodile came out of the pond and grabbed the dog. With this, the woman tried to save the dog. The old woman lost her life in that attempt. St. Lucie County Sheriff Ken Mascara said he estimated the alligator to be about 11 feet long.
After receiving information about the incident, the police reached the spot and recovered the dead body of the woman. The crocodile involved in this attack was caught with an alligator trapper. “Our deepest sympathies go out to the bereaved family,” FWC said in a statement.
