A woman named Erin Weaver took a picture of the alligator and the images have sparked concern for the reptiles in the area. She mentioned that she has seen alligators regularly but they aren't hostile. They duck away in the waters. Weaver told ABC13, "He kind of turned and came right towards me, and he swam right over here along the rocks here, and he sat there. And it was actually a knife—it looked like a steak knife—sticking out of his head." She also added that it was very close to his eye.

Local residents have now raised concern about who could have wanted to hurt these large reptiles so badly. They have approached the wildlife management officials to do something about the creature and offer some help. Weaver believed that some must have done this on purpose. Subject to the intensity of the injuries, the alligator may be removed from the lake. They will have to take prior permission from Texas Parks & Wildlife. It is really shocking that someone would hurt the reptile so badly.
