Courtesy Mike Trinh(MISSOURI CITY, Texas) — A Texas middle school student had quite the start to her first day of school after she opened her front door to see an alligator. Running back into the house, her father didn't believe her until he saw the gator, Mike Trinh wrote in a Facebook post. Luckily, the Missouri City local said his years of watching the 'Crocodile Hunter,' the late Steve Irwin, on TV prepared him to take on the gator. Trinh, the owner of nearby restaurant Mike's Seafood, told ABC News on Wednesday that he had to get his kids to school, so he threw a towel over the gator to subdue it and walk past to his car.
