Alligator Removed from Central Texas Street

Bryan Police Department

Officials said the gator was about 4-feet long.

An unwelcome visitor in a Central Texas city has been put in its place.

Animal control officers have safely removed a 4-foot-long alligator that turned up on a residential street near downtown Bryan.

Police spokesman Officer Jon Agnew said employees with the city's solid waste department on Tuesday reported finding the creature.

WTAW-AM reports the reptile was captured and released into the Navasota River, about 10 miles east of Bryan.

Nobody was hurt.

Police aren't sure if the alligator had been a pet or somehow wandered into the heart of the city. Authorities did not immediately identify whether the big critter was male or female.
