A 5-foot gator crawled near some railroad tracks in Katy, prompting a rescue from the humane division of the city's police department, KHOU reported.
Police wrote on Facebook that the reptile is now "in custody" after it was found on U.S. 90 early Friday. The alligator was found swimming in a puddle after a thunderstorm Thursday night, the Houston Chronicle reported.
