LEE COUNTY, Fla. – Being hungry isn’t fun, but being hangry? Well, that’s ten times worse — especially when you’re an alligator.
Customers at a Florida Wendy’s were greeted with a terrifying surprise in the parking lot on Monday when a six-foot alligator was running loose in the parking lot, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies reported to the scene after they received a call about an alligator chasing pedestrians around the parking lot of the fast-food restaurant.
Officers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the deputies were able to wrangle the alligator and safely relocate it.

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!
