12-foot gator captured at Houston-area shopping center


A Texas shopping center had a surprise visitor Saturday morning.

A 12-foot alligator was discovered outside the First Colony Commons Shopping Center in Sugar Land, Texas, according to ABC station KTRK-TV. It weighed over 800 pounds.

Alligator trapper Christy Kroborth handled the creature, which put up a fight before being subdued. She said the animal was lost and ended up in the parking lot.

A forklift was required to place the captured gator onto a truck.

Kroborth said the creature will be sent to Janik Alligators, an alligator sanctuary.

“He’ll probably just live out the rest of his life and have girlfriends and make babies and be fed every day,” she said. “He’ll be a happy gator.”

Missed the roll he did but you can hear his heavy breathing, the guy had to cover his eye so he doesn’t cheat when he hits the pinata! Lol!
