KATY, TX -- An alligator was spotted hanging out at Beck Junior High School in the Katy ISD Wednesday morning.

Authorities were called around 7:20am to the school on South Fry Road near Mason. Texas Wildlife Park officials are on the scene trying to round up the gator.



A couple attempts to corral the gator were unsuccessful. On two occasions, the alligator managed to snap the rope before it was finally captured.
