An alligator that had been hanging around a recreational area was relocated on Wednesday in northeast Sabine County.

Daily News & More is reporting that it happened at Red Hill Lake, located within the Sabine National Forest and about 9 miles north of Hemphill, TX.

The U.S. Forest Service and Texas Parks & Wildlife worked together after complaints were filed.

A trapper spent the entire day on the lake and spotted only one alligator, which was captured Wednesday evening and has been relocated.

This is the second alligator in east Texas to be relocated in a matter of days - A 12-foot alligator was removed from Lake Sam Rayburn on Wednesday.
