Gloria Serge Death, Obituary – The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission held a memorial service on Tuesday for the woman who was killed by an alligator while walking her dog near Fort Pierce the previous day. The memorial service was held on Tuesday.
The elderly lady, who had reached the age of 85, was out walking her dog. Gloria Serge took her dog for a stroll around the retention pond that is situated within the Spanish Lakes Fairways development during the middle of the day. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reports that an alligator that was approximately 10 feet in length made an unsuccessful effort to abduct the woman’s dog before pulling the dog into the ocean.
The weight of the lizard-like creature was estimated by the trappers to be somewhere between 600 and 700 pounds. Even if it is deemed to be a nuisance, an alligator that is longer than four feet must be removed from a residential lake under the law if it is in this area. The lake in question is located in this region.
“The terrible event that occurred to a member of our community has left us in a state of disbelief and tremendous sorrow. Someone who has lived in Spanish Lakes Fairways for more than twenty years and is dissatisfied with their neighborhood has said that they feel it should be improved.
It is not common to come face to face with an alligator in the state of Florida, but it is not unheard of either. Alligators that were found to pose a threat to humans have already been removed from the population as part of a culling effort.
We go out of our way to behave ourselves in a way that is fair to all different kinds of people and gentle toward all kinds of animals. For the more than half a century that Spanish Lakes has been inhabited, to the best of our knowledge, not a single one of its residents has ever been the victim of any kind of violent or accidental crime. Right now, our thoughts are going out to all of her loved ones as well as our friends.”
