An alligator that grabbed a woman while walking her dogs by a Florida lake was captured by trappers who found an arm in the 12.5-foot gator's stomach.

Her husband was away in Chicago on Friday, neighbor Peter Limia told the Herald, but had warned Matsuki to be careful - or to possibly avoid walks alone at the nature park altogether.

State wildlife searchers located the body of a woman believed to have been killed during an alligator attack in South Florida.

Search teams discovered the body of Shizuka Matsuki about 10 p.m. Friday in a lake at the Silver LakesRotary Nature Park, said Rob Klepper, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Matsuki's dog was also injured, with a "gash" on its side that was consistent with an alligator bite.

The Isla del Sol Homeowners Association in Plantation, Florida, sent an email alert to residents Wednesday, urging them "to exercise caution with our families and pets, mindful that alligators, snakes and other wildlife may be in the area".

Witnesses noticed that something had gone awry after they saw one of Matsuki's dogs barking at the edge of the water. "We will be conducting a thorough investigation into this incident", the commission tweeted. "It's such a sad story, I can't even process it...something like this is so freakish".

Police spotted a very big alligator swimming in the area, and when the reptile was captured and investigated, they discovered a woman's arm inside its stomach.

"We're still looking for her", Gallinal said. At the time of the accident, Matsuki's husband was out of town and was trying to fly back home after hearing the news. Local broadcaster WPLG reported that a human arm was found inside the animal. You can see them. "The larger alligators can take a small animal and small children, and obviously they can take an adult if they don't feel threatened".
