WINTER GARDEN, Fla. (AP) — Wildlife officials say residents in a central Florida neighborhood are on edge after an alligator attacked and killed a dog that a woman was walking along a trail.
WKMG reported the incident happened Thursday night along the West Orange Trail in Winter Garden. Spokesman Chad Weber says the dog ran into a pond to chase some ducks, and was attacked by the gator.
He says a trapper came to the scene to capture and killed the alligator. Weber says the body of the dog was recovered.
