Alligators, fire ants invade heavily populated Houston areas
HOUSTON – Alligators are popping up around Houston due to massive flooding caused by Tropical Storm Harvey.
Heavy rains make it easier for alligators to move, popping up in all kinds of crazy places.
Exercise caution -- anywhere there’s rain, there could be alligators.
See social media photos and videos of alligators found recently in the Houston area.

Halo is wishing everyone in the path of the is safe and reminds us to leave displaced wildlife alone. Alligators can not stay in fast moving floodwaters for long and seek slow water to ride out the storm. If you see a gator during the storm, as long as its not in a road or knocking on your door leave it be until the storm passes. If you need assistance or see an animal emergency call TPWD at 281-842-8100. #gator #hurricaneharvey #alligator #pinktape #gatorChris #gatorsquad #halotheblindgator #halo #hurricane #wildlife #flood #godblesstexasPosted by Gator Squad on Thursday, August 24, 2017
