Georgia's Supreme Court has ruled against the family of a woman killed in a two-thousand-seven alligator attack. Eighty-three year-old Gwenyth Williams bled to death after an alligator bit her in a private island community near Savannah. Her family blamed the community, The Landings, for not doing a better job removing alligators.
The Georgia Supreme Court is set to hear arguments Monday in a case involving a woman found dead in a lagoon that was home to an eight-foot alligator in a subdivision near Savannah. The woman’s heirs claim The Landings Association should have taken steps to remove the gator.
Georgia Supreme Court Justices say, they'll hear a case testing how much protection property owners have from claims stemming from attacks of wild animals. The case comes from the heirs of a woman eaten by an alligator in 2007 at The Landings. It's a private residential community on the marshes near Savannah.
