Tyler Alligator Hunt Continues

One gator down, but could there be one to go?

You may remember seeing it last week - a 6 foot long alligator caught lurking in a public pond near the Glass Recreation Center in Tyler. The man who caught the gator brought him straight to our station in downtown Tyler and showed her off right on the downtown square. But, some say they saw two gators, meaning one could still be at large.

We talked to Mark McDaniels Monday, who caught the gator last week and set traps for the other. He says he doesn't believe it is still there, but can't be sure yet.

He is planning to spend all night spot-lighting the pond and its nearby creek. He said if the 10 foot long male alligator that was seen is still there, he is hoping it will be caught Monday night.
