On July 24th, 2020 in League City, Texas, a 4-year-old girl experienced one of the scariest moments of her life. While she was playing with her brother and babysitter along the creek, an 11-foot alligator sneaked up to her in the water.

Randolph Grande Sr., Brandalyn’s dad, was in the backyard when he saw the alligator head dip up and below the water targeting his little girl. The alligator was coming straight toward her.

The scene was terrifying for Randolph, who had to take quick actions to protect his daughter from a sure alligator attack.

“(The gator) was making a bee-line for us,” Randolph explained to Click2houston. “Andrew had knocked me into the gate. Picked up Bambi and threw her over the fence,” Randolph said, describing the terrifying encounter.

Right after he saved his daughter and the babysitter from the alligator attack, Randolph called the Game Warden who put him in touch with an alligator hunter.

In the video shared by Randolph, fitting a rope around the alligator’s head wasn’t a difficult task. However, lifting the 11-foot massive alligator out of the water was a real struggle.

It took about three hours, several plywood boards, and people’s help to extract the alligator from the water and have him safe. Randolph said to Click2houston that the alligator was taken to Gator Country in Beaumont, where they look forward to visiting him one day.
