Grieving Florida dog owner warns of crocs

Coral Gables, Fla. -- A Florida woman whose dog was killed by a crocodile is urging the city of Coral Gables to put up warning signs for other pet owners along the canals.

Adriana Salcedo, whose Jack Russell terrier was killed by a crocodile earlier this week, said she is going door-to-door collecting signatures on a petition. The petition asks city officials to install signs along the canals warning pet owners of the crocodiles' presence, WSVN-TV, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., reported Friday.

Salcedo said she will deliver the petition to Coral Gables City Hall once she collects at least 100 signatures.
