Alligator behind League City apartment complex

LEAGUE CITY, Texas - An apartment complex in League City is warning its residents about a danger lurking near the property-- an alligator in a pond behind the apartments.

The five-foot-long gator has been seen spotted in a retention pond near South Shore Lakes Apartments.

Local 2 called the complex, and a spokesperson tells us they have reported it to parks and wildlife officials. Those experts do plan to eventually remove the animal.

Until that happens, all residents have been alerted to stay away from the area.
