VIDEO: 9-Foot Alligator Makes Himself at Home in Flooded House

Facebook/Harris County Constable Precinct 4

This gator decided to make himself at home during flooding in Houston!

Hurricane Harvey did some major damages to the Houston area and has greatly displaced people and animals.

One of those displaced animals was one no one wants to find in their home after a flood. A nine-foot alligator!  Constables with the Harris County Sheriff's Department responded to a call of an "intruder" in a home near Lake Houston only to find the big reptile had made himself right at home!

Of course, deputies didn't have the expertise to deal with the alligator by themselves. ABC 13 Houston reports wildlife experts eventually came in to assist in pulling the unwanted reptilian guest out of the home.

"Unwanted visitor" is an understatement in this case!

Fortunately for both humans and the animal, no one was harmed in the incident and the alligator was released back into the wild. This isn't the first displaced alligator incident to be reported. There have also been numerous videos of lost deer and other animals making the usual internet rounds in the wake of this huge storm.

There may be more crazy videos to come with hurricane Irma gathering strength in the Atlantic.

It just goes to show how the hurricanes floods affect everything, not just people. Stay strong Houston, we know you'll get through this disaster!
