Maybe it was looking for a bite?
A large alligator paid a blood-freezing visit to a Wendy’s in Florida on Monday.
The 6-foot-long reptile chased pedestrians through the fast food restaurant’s parking lot in Lehigh Acres, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office said.
“He may have just been ‘hangry’ for a cheeseburger, but he gave many quite the scare!,” the authorities joked in a tweet.
The gator was also spotted across the street, wandering through the parking lot of a rehabilitation center, in video posted by the Lehigh Acres Fire Department.
Wildlife officials said the animal was likely just trying to go from one body of water to another with its journey across Lee Boulevard, local outlet WZVN-TV reported.
Authorities were able to wrangle the beast, and a trapper was relocating it to a farm in LaBelle, Florida.
