The gator was cornered on someone's front porch in Richmond.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office says a resident called them about it Tuesday morning.

Deputies and Animal Control eventually captured the gator, but not before it put up a fight and destroyed a porch chair.

It's not clear what the gator was doing there, but the Houston area is recovering from overnight rains that led to flooding in parts of the region.
