Deputies were called to the location around 1:50 p.m. regarding a body seen in the water, The deputies and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission euthanized the alligator and removed it from the waterway.

One witness reported seeing the alligator with the body before going into the water.

Jamarcus Bullard told WFLA that he saw the reptile “holding on to the lower part of the torso” of the body and pulling it underwater.
