Wildlife officers have caught and killed the alligator that ripped off an elderly woman’s arm in a central Florida canal.
Carol Hough, 84, apparently fell into a canal behind her Leesburg mobile home and was then attacked. An alligator bit off her arm above the elbow.
The necropsy results, however, do not definitively prove the alligator was the alligator responsible.
Officers say they found pieces of hamburger in the gator’s belly but not one piece of Hough’s arm.
Hough was outside of her mobile home standing on her dock when she fell in the canal where neighbors say gators are a common site.
