Family spots alligator on Texas beach

Alligator spotted at Surfside Beach in Brazoria County

BRAZORIA COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — A family had a close call with an alligator over Father’s Day weekend in Texas.

The family says they saw the gator swimming in Surfside Beach not bothering anyone until a fisherman agitated him. Some of the men at the beach were able to catch it using a rope to tie the gator’s mouth shut.

No one was injured. The Texas Game Warden released the gator back into the wild. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
