Alligator Thrills US Shoppers

  • VOA News

Employees at a supermarket in the southern U.S. state of Florida were forced to close their doors to an unwanted visitor this week - a nearly two-meter-long alligator.

The reptile stopped in the store's entrance early Sunday, causing the automatic doors to open and close until the employees locked them.

Customers noticed the animal, which appeared to be relaxing just outside the entrance.

Local police officers tried to lure the gator away as customers gathered to watch and snap pictures.

The alligator eventually made its way to nearby woods. Officers searched the area but could not find the animal. No injuries were reported.
