This picture was taken by a KTBS helicopter flying over Lake Conroe!
For those of you who are not local, Lake Conroe is about 50 miles north of Houston. This alligator was found between Athens and Palestine, Texas near a house. Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator Neighbors had been telling them that they had seen a mammoth alligator in the waterway that runs behind their house, but the wardens dismissed the stories as exaggerations. Texas Parks and Wildlife game wardens had to shoot the beast. A 6'5" tall, game warden with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, walks past a 23-foot, 1-inch alligator that he shot and killed.
