Authorities are still looking for a 71-year-old Louisiana man who went missing after an alligator tore his arm off inside his shed, which was flooded during Hurricane Ida.
Timothy Satterlee was attacked by the scaly beast on Monday at his home in Slidell, where his shed was under several feet of water during the storm surge near Lake Pontchartrain.
Search crews have used a cadaver dog in their search for the victim, St. Tammany Parish sheriff’s Capt. Lance Vitter said Thursday.
“They searched until it got dark yesterday, and unfortunately we still haven’t located Mr. Satterlee,” Vitter said. “There is a high probability that he is deceased, but we can’t make that call until we recover the body.”
When Satterlee’s wife heard splashing Monday, she walked outside their home to see the gator attacking her husband, officials said.
She managed to pulled him away
