He called his wife, Amy Matz, who was getting the couple’s other husky ready to come to the area to play. Matz then called 911, Onslow County Animal Control and the N.C. Wildlife Commission.
JPD and N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission officials went to the area Wednesday morning at about 11 a.m. to look for the alligator. Within about 30 minutes, they found an alligator, about 12 feet in length, on the other side of the Brooks S. Gruber Bridge from where the attack happened.
Jon Shaw, district wildlife biologist with N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, said there is no way to be 100-percent sure the animal they found attacked the dog; however, the one they found had intestines wrapped around its head and hanging from its mouth.
