“Where’s the Beef?” at Wendy’s of course, for those of us old enough to remember those commercials.
But for one alligator in Florida, where the beef and nugs were, he was an unwelcomed guest.
“After receiving a call of an alligator loitering in the parking lot of Wendy’s on Commercial Way, deputies were quickly dispatched to assess the situation,” said Hernando County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO).
When deputies arrived on the scene, they requested assistance from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC).
“Lt. Grover with FWC arrived to assist and the gator was taken into the custody of FWC,” said HCSO.
Readers of The Free Press may recall last weekend, Clearwater Police officers also wrangled a gator that was strolling down a roadway.
Officers were able to wrangle the reptile and keep it safe until a trapper could come to safely relocate it, according to police.
The incident happened at the access road of U.S. 19 near State Road 590, according to police.
“The gator was not in a crosswalk at the time of the capture,” said CPD in a social media post.
