‘Dollar Store Gator’ removed after residents began throwing glass, rocks at it


An alligator dubbed the “Dollar Store Gator” was removed and relocated from a city in Texas after residents started throwing glass and rocks at the reptile.

Residents gave the 400-pound gator the nickname because it spent most of its time hanging around a creek near a dollar store in Port Aransas, reported.



Officials believe the 10-footer had been lurking around the area for two years. Residents who ran into the gator began feeding it, and others began harassing it.

“He’s been showing up on and off for months to the point where half the island was feeding him, and the other half was throwing things at him like glass, rocks and other items,” Richard Gleason, the city’s animal control officer, told the outlet.
