Hurricane Harvey has become a headache for everyone, especially for all the Houstonians, many people have returned to their home in Houston after the massive destruction. Overall one homeowner near Lake Houston encountered a different kind of shocking, post-Harvey sight. it’s so horrible for us.
The constable office said in a Facebook post, along with a photo of the animal and they upon arrival, deputies met a large alligator who made his way into this flooded home. The alligator was captured underneaths a long wooden dining table on the top of it appeared to be a water damaged rug. The toppled reached lay jumbled nearby.
The video of the removal showed at least four people carrying the animal out of the home and loading it into the back of a truck. According to ABC13 Houston, experts from Wildernex Wildlife Control arrived and helped in pulling the nine-foot-long gator from the home. Just be careful when returning to flooded homes! There may be unwanted visitors.
The officials said, “The alligator was returned to its natural.” The extensive flooding has also yielded a flood of gators-on-the-loose stories in Southeast Texas in recent days. Hundreds of gators at one farm had escaped, went one possibly true rumor; hundreds of Gators were close to escaping, but hadn’t yet breached their pens, went the counternarrative. We don’t know, it’s unclear how the constable’s office plan to removed the alligator from the home to specific deputy found the wherewithal to stand still long enough to snap the canceled photo of the animals.
An urban wildlife biologist for Texas Parks and Wildlife, Kelly Norrid said, “In Houston, you’ve got pretty much two things: Where you build, which is higher, and where you don’t build, which is low. Wildlife is going to seek the higher areas, which happens to be the places where we build.”
Norrid said, “Mammals that don’t want to be in the water … may end up being in your attic or garage.”
He said, “They got flooded out of their pond, they got flooded out of their river,” He added, “They had to evacuate, too.”
