A 6-foot alligator made an unwelcome appearance at the front door of the Wal-mart in Apopka on Sunday morning.

The gator stopped in the entryway, causing the automatic doors to open and close until employees locked them.

WKMG-TV in Orlando reports Apopka police officers tried to lure the gator away as customers gathered to watch and snap pictures.

The gator took off toward the nearby woods. Officers scoured the area but couldn’t find him.
