Police seize alligator-like creature from Texas home during drug bust

The 3 foot long Caiman was relocated to a wildlife rescue in Dallas

Police officers see plenty of strange activity while on the job, but nothing quite like what a group of officers in Texas had to deal with recently. The Rusk County police were greeted by an unexpected animal during a recent drug bust. They found an alligator-like creature living inside the home, and seized it along with the drugs.

Sheriff’s deputies and the Texas Game Wardens recently searched a home in Kilgore, Texas after receiving a tip about a drug operation and illegal possession of an alligator. However, when the group entered the home, it wasn’t an alligator inside, but instead a 3 foot long Caiman. The alligator-like creature is normally found in Mexico, as well as South and Central America.
