SUGAR LAND, Texas (AP) - An alligator dubbed Godzilla who tips the scales at more than 800 pounds is being taken to a gator reserve to live out its days, after being found wandering outside a Houston-area shopping center.

Godzilla was discovered Saturday by people arriving for work at the center in Sugar Land. It’s believed he wandered over to the plaza from a nearby creek.

Christy Kroboth is licensed by the state as a “nuisance alligator trapper.” She was called to help subdue Godzilla and cart him away.

She says once he was muzzled and restrained, a forklift was borrowed from Home Depot to load him onto a truck.

Kroboth says Godzilla is blind in one eye and has only partial sight in the other. He’s going to the reserve for his safety.
