#Roommates, the owner of a local alligator sanctuary east of Houston is worried that his 350 giant reptiles could escape if Harvey related flooding continues, according to USA Today.
Gary Sausage, owner of Gator Country in Beaumont, Texas, told KFDM news that his preserve uses “certified, high fences,” but if the water continues to rise, it’s only a matter of time before they slide over.
“We’re less than a foot from (water) going over the fences,” Saurage told the station on Monday. He added, “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. We don’t know what to do.”
USA Today also reported that the heavy rainfall has alligators popping up all in the region, Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office said.
“Leave alone until water recedes,” the sheriff’s office tweeted last week, along with photos of alligators on a driveway, a front porch and beneath a car.
It’s important to note that none of the gators have escaped from Gary’s gator farm.
