For residents of many southern U.S. states، alligator sightings are a common occurrence. The large reptiles love bodies of water of all sizes، and it’s not unusual to see one or several of them hanging out in ponds and lakes، but one particular gator is causing quite a stir in Fort Bend County، Texas.
As far as anyone can tell، the animal hasn’t caused any damage or posed a threat to locals، but it does sport one curious feature: a massive knife sticking straight out of its head. Now، locals are urging wildlife management officials to do something about the creature or، more specifically، give it a helping hand.
A Texas Wildlife agency was contacted and is expected to come check out the alligator sometime next week. In the meantime، both Weaver and her neighbors are acting as advocates for the injured creature. "I want to get help for this alligator.
I don't want to see an alligator swimming around with a knife in its head and suffering،" were the Texan's words. Luckily، alligators are resilient with thick skulls.
