BEAUMONT, Texas -- Children from across Southeast Texas gathered in Beaumont this past weekend to catch alligators.

The Gator Rescue Wildlife Park holds the annual contest. Children jump into a muddy pond and see if they can grab onto the gators.

The gators are about 3 feet long and weigh about 10 pounds. All of the animals have their mouths taped shut for safety.
