BELTON (KVUE) -- Texas game wardens are investigating the death of an 11-foot-long alligator from the river above Stillhouse Hollow Reservoir in Bell County.
According to Texas Parks & Wildlife, alligators have been spotted in the Lampasas River above Stillhouse Hollow Lake for years, but the organization has no reports of dangerous interactions with the public or livestock.
State law requires that if a person wants to engage in alligator hunting, they must be licensed and must have permission from the adjacent land-owner. They also must have a tag purchased upon the alligator's death, and the alligator must be hunted during season, April 1 to June 30.-
