A 43-year-old Florida woman reportedly suffered serious injuries when a 7-foot-7-inch alligator attacked her while she was walking her dog.
The woman was strolling with her pooch near a small lake in the Pinellas County community of Palm Harbor on Tuesday night when the gator lunged at her leg, Fox 13 reported.
She was rushed to a hospital with severe injuries to her lower right leg, according to the news outlet.
Officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said they were able to locate and trap the beast.
Gene Vance, who lives in the area, said he witnessed the attack.

“I was walking my dog and all the sudden I looked back and I see this lady kinda falling by the lake a little bit and apparently she was walking her dog close to the edge of the lake,” Vance told Fox 13.
