Last night a couple living in Northeast Harris County came home to find a yard of alligator awaiting their arrival at their front door! Sometimes alligators just want to find a new home - and this young one picked theirs!!!
Precinct 4 Constable Deputies scoped out the situation and Lt. Romero and Sgt. Morales wrangled it into a garbage can and took it to a place where it could be with other wild things. No one - including the alligator - was harmed, and everyone - including the young reptile - has a good story to tell.
If you should see wildlife like this gator on your property don't attempt to 'capture' the animal. Call the Texas Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for instructions.
