Fort Pierce woman, 85, ‘killed by 10-foot alligator’ after she’s dragged into water while walking her dog

Fort Pierce, Fl (treasurecoast.com)  – An 85-year-old woman was killed Monday by a 10-foot alligator while she was walking her dog at a Spanish Lakes Fairways a retirement community in Fort Pierce.

Investigators responded to a report about an alligator bite.

The alligator initially grabbed the woman’s dog, then attacked her after she tried to save her pet.  The dog survived the attack but no details were revealed about the severity of its injuries.

According to a source a neighbor tried to throw her a rope and she said “It’s too late, he’s got me”.

Officials recovered the woman’s body and the alligator was captured by a nuisance alligator trapper, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

A friend made the  point that the water looked awful and  there  was probably no gater food in  it and  the  banks look sprayed. Because of all these  poisons there are  no other critters to eat. If we are going to have these bodies of  water  we have to  make sure  they  are healthy.

Things  we don’t  know:  Name  of  this  poor woman who  died  a hero  for  saving  her dog. Where is  the dog  now?
