Alligator wrestling

Kevin Davis' job with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has a variety of duties. Included in his job last week was the capture of this five foot long alligator at a dairy in the Pine Forest Community at the Franklin / Hopkins County line. The reptile surprised some dairy hands around 2 a.m. The land owner was not identified. Ranger Davis says this is the fourth alligator he has had to capture and relocate into the White Oak Creek Wildlife Management Area in nearby Camp and Cass counties. All four were in adjoining counties to Franklin County. (Optic Photo)
