As reported by WKMG Local 6 in Orlando, an approximate six foot alligator walked right up to the sliding glass doors at Walmart in Apopka, Fla. Saturday night, Oct 19. As the reptile held court sitting by the entrance the automatic doors opened and closed as if inviting the gator to enter the store.
Customers were busy getting their shopping accomplished at Walmart when the alligator wandered up to the entrance doors as if looking to join the shopping excitement of finding a bargain at Walmart. The doors were locked by the store employees to keep the alligator from the temptation of entering inside and police officers were called. The police attempted to get the gator to leave its resting spot in front of the doors.
As the alligator postured calmly behind the locked glass doors safely protecting the customers and staff inside, viewers took the opportunity for a close-up look of the gator as it seemed to pose for a photo opt. Soon the alligator bid farewell as it carried its toothy grin off in a peaceful exit to the nearby woods. Police searched for the alligator in the swampy area by the store without locating it. The excitement of the evening ended without any injuries resulting from the surprise guest.
Live peacefully with the fellow beasts and never be afraid to dance!
