In August, a concerned citizen contacted
Montgomery County game wardens regarding a neighbor keeping an alligator
in his back yard. The wardens responded to the home where the
alligator was reportedly kept. The homeowner admitted to capturing an
alligator 4 or 5 feet in length from Lake Conroe, transporting it home
to show his kids and then releasing it the next day. The wardens
inspected the property and noticed a room full of aquariums.
