A 12-foot alligator was removed from a lake at the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park in Davie, Florida, after a woman went missing.

Residents of a South Florida homeowner's association received an alligator warning just two days before a woman was attacked and killed by an alligator while walking her dogs. Officials confirmed her identity later that evening after discovering some of her limbs in the alligator's stomach.

The town of Davie will be placing signage at all town parks with bodies of water, warning of natural hazards, following a fatal alligator attack, according to Phillip R. Holste, Davie's assistant town administrator and interim CRA director.

Shizuka Matsuki, 47 and from Plantation, Florida, was killed on Friday at another waterside location in Davie, five miles away.

"It's not uncommon for her to go there", neighbor Peter Limia told the Sun Sentinel. One sported a fresh, bloody wound.

Police said an alligator was spotted in the pond by trappers called in to help, leading officers to believe the woman may have been dragged under.

Witnesses saw a woman with the dogs, then later noticed the dogs alone, barking near the water.

"We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Shizuka Matsuki", Klepper said Saturday.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Saturday it will be "conducting a thorough investigation into this incident".

That's when human remains were found inside the gator, authorities said.

The likelihood of a Florida resident being seriously injured during an unprovoked alligator incident in the state is only 1 in 3.2 million, according to the wildlife commission.

Before Matsuki's death, the most recent fatality was in June 2016, when a Nebraska boy whose family was visiting the Walt Disney World Resort was snatched by an alligator and pulled into a lake at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
