Customers and workers dealt with an unwelcome intruder at a Walmart in Central Florida.
A 6-foot gator slithered up to the Apopka store's entryway Sunday morning and stayed there, causing the automatic doors to open and close.
Employees locked the door to keep the gator out while Apopka police officers tried to lure the animal away.
As customers gathered around to view the alligator and take pictures, the beast took off for the woods.
Officers scoured the swampy area neighboring the building, but lost sight of the alligator.
The gator has not been since since it crawled into the woods.
No one was injured in the incident.
