Police say a woman was walking her pooch without a leash near the water. That’s when the gator ( 12 feet long and weighing over 500 pounds) attacked and killed the dog. Authorities found the gator with pieces of the dog still in its mouth.
Authorities think the gator mistook the dog for a large duck. Either way, it faced the same fate as Fido. Authorities shot and killed the gator after they figured it was too large to relocate.
Wildlife officials plan to either bury the carcass or use it for research. Later gator!
