Naples, Florida – Alligators believed Swallowed a dog whole Caught by a catcher on Monday morning.
Neighbors living in Lime Key Lane, a west wind community in South Naples, recorded these moments in video.
“You have never heard of a crocodile swallowing a 30-40 pound dog,” said Joseph Gamble, the victim’s family friend. “Unbelievable.”
Hunters can trap and capture crocodiles in the canal near the home where the three-year-old Abby once lived. The monument is now located where the dog was attacked.
Last Thursday, the crocodile attacked her, and she was out for a walk with her owner Timmy. The two had just walked some distance.
Timmy is a disabled veteran who used a scooter when they walked. Near their home, he untied his belt when Abby ran to the canal and was attacked by a crocodile.
Timmy got off his scooter when he heard the movement.
“Timmy fell because he couldn’t really walk well and wanted to see what happened,” Timmy’s wife Sheryl Duffy said.
Gamble said he was still in the hospital after breaking his leg. Sheryl Duffy said that the trapped crocodile was 7 feet 7 inches long.
“I want them to do an ultrasound to make sure Abby is there,” Gamble said.
If this crocodile is that one, Duffy said her husband hopes the crocodile will be caught and put down.
“My husband will definitely,” she said. “He said he wanted my dog’s chip.”
NBC2 contacted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission to confirm whether the crocodile was the one who killed Abby. FWC has not announced any details.
