HOUSTON – Alligators and humans live in close proximity in Texas, so it's no surprise that there are plenty of situations in recent years when gators have turned up in places humans may not appreciate, but were once habitat for these animals.
Here are some of the most memorable stories we've covered in recent years involving alligators.
In Cinco Ranch, off Cinco Ranch Boulevard, there is a small pond with a nice waterfall. It's a peaceful part of the neighborhood where people ride bikes and walk their dogs. In the middle of all the beauty, basking in the sun, lives an 8-foot long alligator.
Residents are worried about a gator in a Sugar Land lake -- not because of the dangers of the reptile itself, but because of what someone did to it. The gator is in Pumpkin Lake, which backs up to Cullinan Park, and neighbors said they've seen it swimming around with a knife poking out of its head.
