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.
