FORT WORTH (AP) - The body of an 11-foot alligator has been found in North Texas and state game officials will help investigate the death.

Texas Parks and Wildlife spokesman Tom Harvey says the carcass was discovered last week in the Trinity River between Lake Worth and Eagle Mountain Lake. The area is near the Fort Worth Nature Center.

The animal appears to have suffered some type of tail damage.

Harvey on Tuesday declined to discuss possible circumstances of the reptile’s death. The estimated age of the gator was not released.

Texas allows alligator hunting from April through June on private property.
