Texas homeowner finds massive alligator in flooded home
HOUSTON - A Houston-area man returned to his Harvey-flooded house to find an unwelcome visitor inside: a 9-foot-long alligator.
KTRK-TV reports Brian Foster of Humble discovered the reptile Friday morning when arriving with a work crew to clean the storm-damaged residence. The alligator was in the dining room of the home.
Foster summoned emergency workers, who asked game wardens for assistance.
Video of the reptile removal shows it took four men to carry the alligator, with its snout taped shut. They put the animal in the back of a pickup truck.
The reptile is being returned to its pre-Harvey natural habitat.
