COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- A follow up after a vicious alligator attack in Collier County. Tuesday afternoon, Margaret Webb, 90, was upgraded to fair condition at Lee Memorial Hospital.
Webb has been in the hospital since her leg was bitten off by an alligator several weeks ago. Family members said Webb was doing her daily routine of picking mangos by her house. That's when the eight-foot alligator jumped out of the water and snatched her leg and didn't let go.
A local gator wrestler saw the attack and quickly got the gator to free her.
Several days later the alligator that attacked the Collier County woman was found alive. The alligator was spotted on a road in Copeland, the same area where an alligator bit Webb.
It was lethargic and laying in the road. Wildlife officials say they believed it's the gator they'd been looking for. It had a bullet wound to the head and was the same size of the alligator in the earlier attack.
The alligator is in the custody of Florida Fish and Wildlife and will be euthanized.
