8-Foot Alligator Attacks 77-year old woman in Florida

A 77-year-old woman in Florida was attacked by an 8-foot alligator over the holiday weekend when she was walking by the pond.

This woman was put in the hospital after being attacked by the pond in her Florida neighborhood. An FWC nuisance alligator trapper was dispatched and the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office and the Manatee County EMS also responded to this call.

 

“Wow, it is always the alligator attacks in Florida,” says Mr.Moore.

 

The alligator was 7 feet 10 inches and they are pretty sure it was removed because no other animal in the area fit the descriptor of the alligator.

 

“That’s a HUGE alligator,” says Farah. 

 

As of today, the woman is recovering well and no one else was injured from the attack.

 

“That is good that she is well and recovering, especially from that big of an alligator,” says Farah.
