Gator County’s two biggest attractions, Big Al and Big Tex, have been put in trailers to prevent them from escaping.
Hurricane Harvey might cause hundreds of alligators to soon escape from their homes at a popular alligator tourist attraction, according to KFDM’s reporting.
According to KFDM, “Gator County has more than 350 gators in outside areas of the attractions.”
The rising flood waters created by Hurricane Harvey are expected to surpass the fencing that keeps many of these 300-plus alligators encaged.
“We’re less than a foot from (water) going over the fences,” Gator Country owner Gary Saurage said. “All of these are certified, high fences, but when it won’t quit, it won’t quit. We’ve worked around the clock, and I don’t know what else to do. We’re truly tired. Everybody’s at the end of it, man.”
But Gator Country took extra precautions securing two of the park’s largest alligators, Big Al and Big Tex. Those alligators have been put in trailers to prevent them from potentially escaping.
