League City father Andrew Grande was inside his home when he spotted a massive reptile headed for his kids and their babysitter.
Grande saw an alligator rising out of the canal behind his home. Then, the alligator started creeping towards his kids and their babysitter playing in the backyard. So Grande rushed outside and grabbed them all and put them behind their gate for protection.
He had to call several places to get an alligator hunter to show up on the scene. After a half-hour trying to contain the reptile, the hunter called in Texas game wardens for help. Eventually, it took seven people, two poles, rope and several pieces of plywood to capture and remove the alligator from the premises.
