(WFLA) – Lakeland police are at Lake Hunter where a large alligator was seen with a man’s body in its mouth.
On Tuesday afternoon, at 1:40 someone at Florida Presbyterian Homes called 911 to report seeing an alligator in the lake that had a body in its mouth.
Police responded to the scene and told WFLA TV that they saw the gator with the body.
“The officers got here and the alligator still had the person. He let the individual go, he is deceased, looks like this person may have been dead more than a day,” said Sgt. Gary Gross from Lakeland Police.
It’s not clear if the gator killed the man or how he died. “We don’t want to speculate but I will tell when the officer got here the alligator did a roll and had the person in contact with him,” added Gross.
