911 call of fatal Davie gator attack released

DAVIE, FLA. (WSVN) - The call an anonymous Davie park-goer made to 911 to say a woman had been snatched by an alligator has been released.

The caller said 47-year-old Shizuka Matsuki disappeared while walking her dogs on June 8.

That phone call was released Thursday.

Caller: “I think an alligator got this lady.”

Dispatcher: “You think an alligator got the lady?”

Caller: “Yeah. Two dogs came running back out to the parking lot, and I walked all the way back to the park, and one dog was still hanging out in the water, and I saw a huge alligator.”

Dispatcher: “Did you get any type of description of the lady?”

Caller: “She was wearing dark shorts and a dark shirt.”

Some of the victim’s remains were found in the belly of the 12-foot, 6-inch alligator following a necropsy. Her body was then found several hours later.

A memorial for Shizuka has been established outside of the Silver Lakes Rotary Nature Park.

The park remains closed, as of Thursday.

The Town of Davie is planning to put up warning signs for park visitors once it reopens.
