"One of them which had an injury, a fresh injury", said Davie Police Detective Vivian Gallinal about one of the dogs identified as a pit bull.

The dogs have since been taken in by animal control.

The victim's brother was at the scene visibly distraught and awaiting answers. Spokesman Robert Klepper didn't mention specific body parts but did confirm that it was Ms. Matsuki.

Residents told the Sun-Sentinel they have complained about alligators at the park. Dressed in gym attire, the petite and friendly woman often let her pets swim in a canal on the southwestern end of the neighborhood, letting the dogs off their leash as they frolicked in the water with tongues hanging out.

"That gator was there in a heartbeat", she told the Sun Sentinel.

Trappers have spotted a 12-foot alligator in the pond in Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park, she said.

Authorities warn that gators are "opportunistic feeders", meaning that they will generally snap onto anything that gets near them.

"I was afraid", she said.

Despite the fact that children have been seen swimming in the lake from time to time, residents say it's a risky area, WSVN reported.

"It could have been one of us", said Patricia Ramsaran. "It could have been me or my kids out here and an alligator come out of nowhere", witness Patricia Ramsaran told WSVN.

Sadly, this isn't the first time a park goer has come across an alligator. "It's sad to hear someone got hit by the gator", he said.

Matsuki, 47, of Plantation, Florida, disappeared Friday morning while walking beside the lake. A short time later, he said, he saw the dogs wandering alone. State authorities searched the lake and captured a 3.5-meter-long alligator.

"The FWC believes that the victim is deceased and we will continue recovery efforts on the lake with local authorities", he said. From 1948 to 2017, 401 unprovoked bite incidents have occurred in Florida with 24 of these proving fatal.
