Do alligators like sunflower seeds?

On Friday, an alligator visited the dugout of the Class A Charlotte Stone Crabs in Port Charlotte, Fla.

Clearly, there was a difference in opinion as to the size of the gator, but who wanted to get close enough for a proper measurement?

Well, someone did. SunCoast Sports reported that the gator was captured and driven to a “pond behind the stadium parking lot, where it was released.”
