Alligators can be aggressive during mating season but they can also be testy when they’re “hangry for a cheeseburger.”
Customers at a Florida Wendy’s got more than what they ordered when they were chased through the parking lot by a 6-foot alligator, Lee County sheriff deputies said.
Deputies were called to a Wendy’s on Lee Boulevard Tuesday after they say the alligator chased pedestrians through its parking lot.
The deputies and a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers were able to wrangle the gator and relocate it.
No word from officials if the alligator was upset his order was taking too long or not.

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!
