There have been many reports coming out of Texas about alligators making their way onto a front lawn or driveway. But a report coming out of Humble, Texas has to top them all.
Deputy constables from Harris County were responding to a 911 call at a home near Lake Houston. The caller said there was an intruder in the house, but it turns out the intruder was a 10 foot alligator. (photo below)
Brian Foster is just one of many thousands of Texans dealing with a home that has been flooded by Hurricane Harvey. He and a crew entered his home on Friday morning to begin the process of cleaning up the mess when they found an alligator in the living room.
Foster immediately called the police, who then reached out to the Texas Game Warden.
Jarred Pollard with Wildnernex Wildlife Control captured the gator and will be returning it back to the wild.
Authorities are telling residents that if they see an alligator in the house, or around the yard to leave it alone. The gator should find its way back to where it came from. However, if the gator appears in the living room, or if it gets aggressive, they urge residents to call authorities immediately.
