More Alligators Removed from Community Where 85-Year-Old Woman Was Killed

More alligators have been removed from the Florida retirement community where an elderly was attacked and killed ... with additional searches underway.
A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rep tells TMZ ... two additional gators have been yanked from water at Spanish Lakes Fairways in Fort Pierce since last week's deadly incident ... and not just that, but we're told they'll probably be killed.
The FFWCC rep notes there've been a total of 5 gator complaints that a licensed nuisance alligator trapper (NAT) is currently working at the community.
The way they gauge which ones they'll go after and which ones they'll leave be is based on the public safety risk these animals might pose ... and, for now, only three of them have been taken out.
Remember, we'd been told by a neighbor at Spanish Lakes that ALL of the gators were being fished out of the surrounding lakes and ponds there ... and it certainly sounds like they're on the hunt for more.
As for what exactly is done with the removed gators, FFWC says they become the property of the NAT in question -- and are often processed for their hide/meat. So, RIP. 💀🐊
