Alligators found in Rio Grande
Texas wildlife officials say there are six alligators living in the Rio Grande, east of Fort Hancock in Hudspeth County.
There were approximately six alligators that were observed, three of them that were in the 2- to 4-foot range, and about three of them in the 5- to 6-foot range, Texas Game Warden Ray Spears told KFOX-TV, El Paso, Texas.
The warden said his office will be monitoring the alligators to keep people safe and to see if the animals reproduce in the river.
