Witness saw gator drag woman into Florida lake

Police in Davie are now looking for a woman who may have been dragged into a pond in Davie on Friday morning.

Police in Davie are searching for a woman after a witness said an alligator dragged her into a lake.

Broward County Animal Care officers and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission have also arrived at the scene.

The Davie Police Department has not yet returned Fox News' request for further comment.

"Her dogs won't leave the pond".

The pond is in a park near the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, a major Miami-area tourist and entertainment attraction.

The lake at the nature park is sprawling and one of many.

Edwin Gomez is at the park almost every day. "It's sad to hear someone got hit by the gator", he said.

The park is surrounded by homes.

Neighbours told local media that they have seen children swimming in the lakes.

State wildlife officials are now hunting for the alligator.

It is not uncommon for alligators to be removed from householders' swimming pools, but their attacks on people are rare.

Despite the reptiles' widespread presence, only 22 people have died in alligator attacks in Florida since 1948. The most recent death occurred in 2016, when a 2-year-old boy playing near the water's edge at a Walt Disney World resort was killed.
