The Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission said it had suspended
trapping activities near where the boy, Lane Graves, of Elkhorn,
Nebraska, was attacked last week.
The commission "is confident that the alligator responsible for
the attack has been removed," it said in a statement. Trappers
have taken six alligators from the area.
The alligator snatched the toddler on June 14 as he played at
the edge of the Seven Seas Lagoon, a manmade lake at the Walt
Disney Co resort.
Police divers found Lane's body underwater the following
afternoon, not far from where he was taken. An autopsy found
that he died from drowning and traumatic injuries.
At the time, the resort had "No Swimming" signs that did not
mention alligators. Disney has since installed signs by the
lagoon warning guests of alligators and snakes.
