A family outing turned into a nightmare when an alligator snatched a pet dog Saturday.
According to WCJB, Scarlett Dent and her 8-year-old son Easton Lowery were throwing sticks into Newnans Lake at the nature preserve, about 2 miles east of Gainesville in Alachua County for their dogs Beignet and Blue to fetch.
While Dent was talking to a neighbor, she heard Easton screaming. She turned around and saw one of her dogs, Beignet, inside an alligator’s mouth.
“He looked at me and he went under, and I never saw him again," Dent said.
Blue survived the incident.
