Deputies Detain Gator Walking in Street


Gator struggles with deputies.

Houston, TX: Fort Bend County Sheriff’s deputies had a snappy Saturday as they wrangled an alligator that waddled into a Rosenberg subdivision.

Officials say the gator was seen walking along Reading Road in Bonbrook Plantation in Rosenberg.

Yesterday morning, multiple 911 calls came into the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office reporting a 15-foot alligator walking in the street through a residential area.

Officials say that alligators are native to the area. But, they mostly stay within or close to bodies of water. The gator was relocated to a nearby river.

The department showed a good sense of humor in a tweet:
