Alligator torments Texas shoppers
Houston, TX.- A massive alligator spent the weekend terrorizing some shoppers in Texas. Parks and Wildlife officials had to be called to remove the reptile from a Home Depot parking lot.
The animal was so big it had to be lifted out of the shopping center with a forklift.
Texas Parks and Wildlife official, Kristy Krorbroth is the one who finally subdued the animal. The 120-pound dental hygienist works for the department in her off-time. She says normally people are a little surprised to see her.
"They kind of doubt me at first, until I get them taped and ready to go," said Krorboth.
The gator was taken to an alligator farm where officials say he'll probably live out the rest of his life having girlfriends and making babies.
