MIAMI, Fla. (WIBW) -- Guy walks into a Florida convenience store with an alligator in a box. No it's not the set up for a joke...it really happened in Miami.

Fernando Caignet Aguilera approached the clerk in a convenience store with the intent of obtaining some beer. When the topic of payment came up...Aguilera offered a live alligator which he had literally in hand for exchange.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the man saw the alligator at a local park and when he caught it; he thought maybe someone would trade him some beer for his gator.
