April 7, 2015

GROVES, Texas (AP) — A 400-pound alligator safely hauled out of a Southeast Texas pond has a new home at a tourist attraction that caters to gators.
Gator Country preserve owner Gary Saurage said Tuesday that the 11-foot reptile joins more than 400 other alligators at the preserve in Beaumont, Texas.
Saurage got the animal after a landowner in nearby Groves called about an aggressive alligator in a rural pond where children swim.
Saurage went to the swampy site to rope and remove the male alligator, which he estimates is 35 to 40 years old.
