When Alligators Invade - Lake Conroe

alligator eyeTwo weeks ago a large alligator was reported to animal control in Conroe. Authorities arrived quickly and removed the alligator – relocating it to a safer place. The reporter said that ” a little boy told his mommy there was an alligator in the yard.”


Gator found in neighborhood near Conroe




As parents we assume that our children are safe in our neighborhood yards and playgrounds. But by being so close to Lake Conroe we must keep an eye out for the animals and reptiles that live in the area. We normally do not expect to come across such a large and imposing beast as an alligator.

Fortunately, in this case, the young lad was not harmed and the alligator got a free ride to the closest swamp.

There’s a lesson to be learned here: Teach your children what to do when they encounter an alligator, a snake, a stray cat or dog, raccoon, opossum, squirrel, an injured bird, or any other critters they may come across. Or for that matter, do you know what to do if you come across an injured animal? Livestock on the highway? An injured game animal on the side of the road? A lost dog or cat?

For example, let’s say it is deer season. You have your hunting license in your pocket with tags left. You see a large buck get hit by a car and land dead on the shoulder of the road. This buck has a trophy rack. Can you stop and take it?



The game animal was not killed by legal means.
