WARNING: readers may find this very distressing.
This is a tragic and horrific story.
I love the FREEDOM of Florida, but I’m not sure I would want to live there.
I’m both fascinated and terrified of all the alligators living in that state.
Every pool of water, no matter how small or shallow it may look, is very likely to house an alligator.
How do you people live around these things?
Sadly, one woman paid the ultimate price walking her small dog right along the shoreline.
Ugh, it just makes me sick.
This poor 85-year old woman taking her small dog out for a walk never suspecting it would be her final day.
And what a tragic and horrifying way to go.
I feel so bad for her and her family.
It was all captured on video:

From Fox News, the alligator is said to have weighed 600 to 700 pounds!
A video has emerged showing the moments before a 85-year-old Florida woman was fatally attacked by an alligator while walking her dog in a retirement community.
Gloria Serge was by a retention pond behind her house in Fort Pierce, Florida, on Monday when the 10-foot-long alligator crawled up from the water and first tried to attack her dog.
The surveillance footage shows the reptile swimming in a direct path toward Serge’s dog before it rises out of the water and scampers up the embankment in pursuit of the animal.
The elderly woman was taken to the ground with the alligator then biting her feet, and then she was dragged into the water. While the woman’s body was recovered from the retention pond, the dog survived.
“Please hurry!… It’s a huge gator. It’s huge, I don’t have anything to give to her,” a neighbor is heard saying in a frantic 911 call released by Fort Pierce Police.
“It’s too late. Oh, my God,” the woman is later heard saying.
“Did the gator pull her under?” the dispatcher asks.
“Yes,” the neighbor screams.
“Alright, you don’t see any of her body, nothing sticking out?” the dispatcher says.
“Nothing, she’s gone,” the woman replies.
The alligator, which is reported to weigh between 600 and 700 pounds, was trapped and killed by a nuisance gator trapper.
And now the video.

Absolutely awful thing to happen.
But just one question for the Reporter interviewing the neighbor….
Bro, what kind of question is: “Do you wish you would have gotten to her sooner?”
That’s your question?
