Alligator found in restaurant bathroom

A Florida owner was surprised when she found an Alligator in the bathroom of her restaurant.

Joan Peoples says that when workers prepared to reopen the restaurant, which had been closed due to unseasonable spring flooding from a nearby creek, workers found a 4-foot-long baby alligator hiding behind the commode in the men's bathroom, WJXT-TV, Jacksonville, Fla., reported Wednesday.

"I thought it was a fish or an eel or something, and all I caught was the back of the tail," Peoples told the station. "I got down and started looking, and he got in behind the commode … and I said, 'Oh my God, that's a baby gator!'"

They put the gator back in the local creek. He's lucky he didn't end up on the menu.
