A man in Miami walked into a convenience store with a four-foot alligator and tried to swap it for a twelve-pack of cold beer — and none of this Natty Light nonsense. By this guy’s logic, an animal of this caliber commands high-quality beer; he tells CBS, “I want a Corona, because the alligator is so beautiful.” The cashier didn’t bite and instead called the police, Florida Fish and Wildlife released the gator back into the wild, and the man faces felony misdemeanor charges for possession of a gator with intent to sell.
