FULSHEAR, TX (KTRK) --A homeowner had quite the shock when he went inside his garage and found an alligator wedged between his lawnmower and the wall.
Douglas Dallmer says he found the 10-foot-long gator near the garage wall of his home on Walton Water Way in Fulshear.
"I'm thankful he wasn't hungry when I walked out the garage," he laughed.

Animal removal experts were called to get the alligator out of the garage.
But it wasn't easy.
"As he tried to put the noose on him, he was hissing and biting," Dallmer explained. "He became very violent."
The gator was eventually removed by R6 Outfitters and will be released to an alligator farm in New Caney.
