Gator: “Where’s the beef?”

An alligator reportedly chased several people through a Wendy’s parking lot in Florida on Monday.

The incident occurred in Lehigh Acres, Florida, according to the New York Post.

Fortunately, authorities were able to get the animal under control before anyone was hurt. The Sheriff’s Twitter account also posted several photos of the large animal, including one that shows officials wrangling the gator from behind. One worker can be seen sitting on the gator’s back, holding its mouth shut while several other officials hold the animal still with capture rods.

Clearly, you need a unique set of skills to be a police officer in the sunshine state.

Editor’s Note: “Why didn’t they just call a social worker?”

The six-foot-long gator was likely just trying to move from one body of water to another when it entered the parking lot.

Fun Fact: Alligators make lousy house pets.

According to the New York Post, the gator was relocated to a farm in LaBelle, Florida.

Something about this video makes me pine for an Uncle Alligator kid’s meal at Rax Roast Beef.
