SEE YA LATER, GATOR!
Tow truck hauls off 12-foot terror
AN enormous Godzillasized alligator stalked a Houston suburb until it was subdued by a brave trapper — but the 400-pound beast was so huge it had to be hauled off by a tow truck!
The gargantuan gator, which measured an astonishing 12 feet, four inches, was spotted skulking in the darkness in a subdivision in Atascocita, Texas, and finally made itself at home in the middle of a road!
Eyewitness Michael Schwab says the scaly giant was a “sight to see.”
Local lawmen corralled the creepy critter and called in a reptile wrangler, who taped shut the beast’s deadly jaws before attempting to haul it away.
Schwab says, “He was thrashing around. He looked tired, but it was beginning stages of them removing him, and it was probably one of the craziest things I’ve seen animal-wise.”
However, the weighty menace was too heavy to lift, causing cops to call in mechanical reinforcements!
Harris County Constable Mark Herman later shared a video online of a tow truck hoisting the rope-wrapped animal onto the back of the vehicle and joked, “See you later, alligator!”
The shocking clip sparked a flurry of comments, including, “So, we just have dinosaurs roaming neighborhoods now?”
But the horrific saurian, now in the care of animal control officials, is just the latest alligator to terrorize the Lone Star State!
Days earlier, an 11-footer was snagged as it prowled through the grass in Katy!
According to authorities, that renegade was taken to Gator Country, a sanctuary for nuisance reptiles found roaming in residential areas.
Experts say alligators are more active during warmer weather and seek out water during times of drought.
