Police in Florida said an officer visited a Walmart store to remove an unwelcome customer — an alligator.
The Port St. Lucie Police Department said officer Michael Connor was dispatched to the local Walmart store Tuesday when employees called around 3:17 a.m. to report a small alligator in the employee break area.
The department tweeted a photo of Connor carrying the 1.5-foot intruder out of the store.
“Officer Connor had to escort an unwelcome shopper at Walmart,” the department tweeted. “The little fellow was trespassed and relocated in good health.”
The alligator was released into a nearby waterway, police said.
