4-foot-long alligator removed from Bryan street
BRYAN, TX -- 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 says employees with the city's solid waste department on Tuesday reported finding the creature.
WTAW radio 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.
