Homeowner's association issued gator warning before attack

The South Florida Sun-Sentinal reported that the Isla del Sol Homeowners Association in Plantation had issued an alligator warning to residents in an email, urging them to "exercise caution with our families and pets, mindful that alligators, snakes, and other wildlife may be in the area".

Witnesses saw a woman with the dogs, then later noticed the dogs alone, barking near the water.

Authorities located her body a short time later, the FWC announced on Twitter.

Gator hunters were dispatched to the scene and captured and killed an alligator measuring 12 feet 6 inches.

Still, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission warned people not to jump to conclusions about what had happened on the side of the pond until they could investigate.

Following the death of a woman mauled by an alligator at a nature park last week, the Town of Davie will be putting up warning posts.

Jim Borrelli, a friend of Matsuki, said she and her husband have walked their dogs in the park previously.

Peter Limia, who lived across the street from Matsuki and her husband, Yukio, told the Sun Sentinel the 47-year-old frequently went to the park.

"[Matsuki's] dogs won't leave the pond", Davie Police Maj. Payne says the important thing is to remember is that alligators are wild animals, and they should be treated as such.

"I think she stopped walking her dogs behind our house when one of our neighbor's dogs was taken by [an] alligator", he wrote.

According to Florida Fish and Wildlife, the state has averaged five unprovoked alligator bites yearly since 1948.

"That gator was there in a heartbeat", she told the newspaper. At least 24 of those incidents resulted in fatalities, according to the report.

In a well-publicized attack in June 2016, a 2-year-old boy died after an alligator pulled him into a lagoon near a Walt Disney World hotel.
