Alligator found roaming in Fort Bend County neighborhood

FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office is reminding everyone that pets are required to be on a leash after capturing an alligator in a neighborhood.

In a tweet they said they'll check the gator for a chip, but he may need a foster family.

The advisory appeared to be a bit of humor from deputies tasked with removing the reptile.

They said in the tweet that alligators are native to the area.
