Alligator Spotted In Lake Arlington

ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – A North Texas lake has its own version of the Lock Ness monster.

A three and a half foot alligator has been found living in Lake Arlington. It was spotted last week along the south end of the lake.

Tom Harvey with Texas Parks and Wildlife says right now there is no reason to try and capture the gator.

KRLD’s Marlee McCormick talks with Harvey about the Arlington Alligator:

Harvey says the most important thing is not to feed the alligator or let it get to human food because then it will start to associate people with a meal.

The TPWD has information on their website on what to do if you see an alligator.  Click here to find out more.

    Hey, these critters have got to live SOMEWHERE. Humans are taking over their natural habitat. Leave him be.
