Game Warden Field Notes, caught on camera

Sting Operation

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.
