The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating after several headless alligator carcasses were found in Loxahatchee Groves.
Amy Best is still trying to wrap her head around that gruesome sight.  

Two of them were lying on the edge of a canal behind her Loxahatchee Groves neighborhood. One of them was stuffed in a white container.
"It's reprehensible," Best said. "I don't understand how people could do this."
While she knows it is gator hunting season, Best doesn't believe a hunter or even a poacher is behind this.
"They wasted the skin, which is the most valuable part, and then the meat," Best said.
That is why she is concerned about who is responsible and what that person could be capable of.
"Whoever is doing this and violently killing these animals can come after anybody," Best said.
