Mom was in the house looking out the back window and spotted this fella swimming around in the pond. 40-50 yds off the patio. On the Henderson/Anderson county line. Small pond too. Not even an acre.

Top water plug on some stiff braided line. Catch him/her and tape it's mouth shut and call a warden.

I took an ecology class when I was in school at A&M. There was a lab part, we did all kinds of junk. One was sampling a pond. We seined it. I got volunteered to do the sein with another guy he posted his end on the bank and I waded out and made a 1/2 circle back into the bank. I got about 90 degrees out and I see something pop up at the far end of the pond... you guessed it, an alligator about 6 foot long and then another one about 2 foot long. I looked at my lab professer with a WTF look. She said it would be fine just hurry up. She new it was there the whole time but said it never bothered anyone.

I've been told by several Fish and Game Officers that they are in every lake in Texas. The Sabine River, which is about 6 miles from place is thick with them, and it's just a matter of time until one works it's way up the creeks to the one that runs along the boarder of my place and into my pond. Beavers are my biggest problem, but one day I'll probably have a similar picture to post.

Every pond in Florida has a Gator in it but I haven't seen one since I moved to Texas. I like Gators.
