A 10-foot-long alligator was spotted roaming the streets of an Atascocita neighborhood yesterday.
Harris County Constable Precinct 4 said in a social media posting that deputies responded to the 13800 block of N Lake Branch Lane to an alligator in the middle of the road.
Danielle McGrath told our TV partners Channel 2 her neighbor first spotted the animal on a surveillance camera and told his neighbor who wakes early that the huge animal was underneath his truck in the driveway around 5 a.m.
By the time authorities arrived, the animal had moved to the street, having “a good ol’ time,” McGrath said.
McGrath said authorities called a specialist in and a man in American flag shorts showed up in an old pickup truck. After covering the animal with a hood and tying it up, he worked with a tow truck driver to lift the animal onto his pickup truck.
