Texas: On Saturday, the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office informed and warned district resident’s alligators dislodge by the floods owing to Hurricane Harvey and directed them to leave alligators alone until water moves away.
And the warning came true for one Arlene Kelsch, when she marked two alligators swimming in her flooded backyard. She filmed a video of it on August 27 that has gone viral on social sites. It shows one alligator swimming in her backyard prior to the camera pans to the low part of the fence, wholly submerged in water, through which the reptiles came. The clip then goes on to show the second alligator in water.
