A 900 pound alligator takes a stroll through a Texas parking lot.

SUGAR LAND, TX - A 900 pound alligator takes a stroll through a Texas parking lot.

Getting the gator out of the lot and away from a busy shopping center wasn't easy.

The woman who fell to the ground in the video is actually a professional alligator wrangler.

She was willing to admit, that she had her work cut out for her in Sugar Land this weekend.

"I try to be sweet to these guys, He wasn't too sweet to me but I'll forgive him for that," Christy Kroboth explained.

With the help of a police officer, she managed to capture the gator.

They lifted up the big guy with a forklift from a nearby "home depot" and put him in the back of a pick-up.

"He is probably going to end up in El Campo, there's an alligator farm out there," Kroboth said, "He'll probably just live out the rest of his life and have girlfriends and make babies and be fed every day. He'll be a happy gator."

Wildlife officials say the gator is blind in one eye and probably wound up in the parking lot after getting lost on its way back to a nearby creek..
