Man attempts to trade a live alligator for some beer

Turns out people will not accept a reptile in exchange for alcohol.

THERE COMES A TIME in every person’s life when they’re desperate for a cool, refreshing alcoholic beverage, but has anyone ever been as desperate as this guy?

This gentleman in Miami, Florida found a four-foot alligator in a nearby park and decided to offer it to a shopkeeper in exchange for a 12-pack of beer.

Here’s the CCTV footage of him brandishing the reptile at the shopkeeper:

Naturally the staff weren’t too thrilled with the proposition and called the police, who slapped him with charges of illegally capturing an animal and trying to sell it.

He should think of that the next time he makes one of those SNAP decisions. Har har.
