He found an alligator in the water next to his house. 10-year old Wade Young showed us what used to be his favorite fishing hole. It was his favorite until he spotted a three feet long gator there earlier this week. Wade's mom, Tracy, says she's never seen an alligator any place other than a zoo. The alligator isn't causing any problems, but it sure is drawing a crowd outside Bossier Parish's Lakewood Subdivision. Wade's mom says she's called the authorities about the gator, but she was told there's nothing that can be done to remove it from here since it's not being a nuisance. "
