Tank, who weighs 100lbs (8 stone) was grabbed by the jaws of the huge beast, and there was nothing Cynthia could do but watch.

Speaking to WFLA about the attack, heart-broken Cynthia said: “My dog didn’t even know what happened to him.

“He had that look like, [he was] yelping.

“He was like ‘Help me mama,’ but I couldn’t do nothing. He came back up and I [spotted] my white dog in his mouth. He just sat there with my dog in his mouth.”

Cynthia said her six-year-old dog “didn’t even stand a chance” against the massive alligator.

“All I could do was stand there and watch my dog get eat,” she said.

“And I just don’t want it to happen to no one else or a kid or anything.

“He was so fast. He took my dog, and he was gone… Tank didn’t even stand a chance.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has released a fact-guide for living near crocs and alligators.


The guide warns: “Animals that resemble their natural prey, such as dogs and cats, are more susceptible to being bitten by crocodiles when in or near the water.

“Do not allow pets to swim, exercise, or drink in water that may contain crocodiles as they resemble natural prey items of crocodiles. Always keep pets at a safe distance from the water.”

In a statement a spokesperson from Polk County Parks and Natural Resources Division said: “We are saddened to hear about the loss of a beloved family pet.”
