Are you willing to lose an appendage to an alligator attack in return for a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger from Wendy’s?

If you’re anything like me, then the answer is… maybe. But some folks in Florida had to tussle with a gator before they got their frostys and chicken nuggets, whether they wanted to or not.

The 6-foot long gator reportedly chased several pedestrians through the parking lot:

“Deputies responded to Lee Blvd today after this 6-ft gator chased pedestrians through a Wendy’s parking lot.

He may have just been “hangry” for a cheeseburger, but he gave many quite the scare!

Alongside Florida Wildlife  Conservation Commission, we wrangled the gator and safely relocated it.”

After harassing Wendy’s customers, the gator wandered over to the parking lot of a health and rehabilitation center where it was finally apprehended by state officials before being relocated to a safer area.
