When an alligator in Missouri, Texas, began lurking around this neighborhood, a gator hunter was brought in to help.
NATS -- "Gator on baby!"
Chris Stephens struggles to hang on.
NATS -- "Oh yeah big boy!"
But luckily he's got back up... from his 13-year-old daughter, Taylor.
Then a police officer tapes up the mouth.
But as Chris prepares to haul her away, he notices something...
NATS -- "It's fat, holy cow!"
And warns the gathering crowd.
SOUNDBITE (English) ALLIGATOR HUNTER CHRIS STEPHENS, SAYING:
"The next person may have their chihuahua with them, and the gator's not mean, he's just thinking -- wow, they brought me a chihuahua today!"
For Taylor, helping her Dad -- who's a licensed nuisance hunter -- is no big deal.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) GATOR HUNTER'S DAUGHTER TAYLOR STEPHENS SAYING:
"I've been doing it since I was 4, so it's not scary. It's more of a routine."
The alligator is off to the alligator farm... and the father-daughter duo pack up for the next hunt.
