Alligators are becoming more active as the weather heats up
The bodies of two more women have been found in Florida having suffered apparent attacks by alligators.
The finds follow a fatal attack last week, only the 18th confirmed alligator killing in Florida since 1948.
In the latest cases, a 23-year-old woman was pronounced dead after being pulled from the jaws of an alligator in the Lake George area.
The body of another woman who had apparently suffered alligator bites was found in a canal near St Petersburg.
Residents have been warned not to swim in vegetated areas or walk pets near water, particularly at night. "
