Watch: Huge 1,200lb alligator rescued in Texas after being spotted on a residential road

An alligator believed to be at least 11-foot and 1,200lbs was rescued on a residential road after being spotted by locals.

The gator was seen by a concerned resident walking down a road in Missouri City, Texas, USA.

Police were soon notified and dispatched a specialist alligator wrangler, who is seen in the video rounding up the huge reptile.

Timothy DeRamus was tasked with bringing the gator to safety and peace to the neighbourhood of Quail Valley Thunderbird.

He is seen approaching the alligator and managing to cover its head with a bag.

The huge animal was too heavy for DeRasmus to carry on his own so he called in for assistance.
