In a story that could only take place in wacky, weird Florida, a man attempted to trade a live, four-foot alligator for a 12-pack of beer at a Miami convenience store WSVN reports.
Fernando Caignet Aguilera found the alligator at a nearby park, captured it, and took it to the store in hopes of bartering it for a 12-pack of beer. He brought the gator to the front of the store and tried to trade it. The clerk, naturally petrified, called authorities.
The gator’s story has a happy ending, though: he was found to be in good shape and will be released back into the wild.
Unfortunately for him, the gator thief has since been cited for taking possession of and trying to sell the alligator.
