According to Florida Fish and Wildlife, the state has averaged five unprovoked alligator bites yearly since 1948. During an autopsy, part of a human body was reportedly found inside the reptile. The alligator was euthanized.

Peter Limia, a commercial realtor who lives near Matsuki's home, said that after news broke of Matsuki's death, he and his neighbors gathered to share information they may have.

Residents in the area said that alligators were known to be in the water, and they wouldn't let their dogs walk without a leash because of this.

One woman said she let her poodle out into the backyard last winter and the dog never returned.

The park, which is surrounded by homes and is popular for picnics and dog-walking, was closed following the incident.

"They should have, at least, signs up, "look out for gators and snakes, ' because they have 'no swimming" signs, but no enforcement", Davie resident Edwin Gomez said.

"She was able to pry the alligator's mouth open and remove her leg", a spokeswoman for the commission said at the time. I'm out here all the time with my kids, my husband.
