TITUSVILLE, Fla. – Maybe he or she just didn't get it their way?

Traffic ground to a halt in a Central Florida town after a large alligator was spotted near a Titusville Burger King.

WFTV reports that streets were closed and people kept far away when the 9-foot gator was discovered near the restaurant location.

Officers stopped traffic until trappers arrived at the scene.

The alligator was about to cross the street before he was eventually captured.

WFTV says officials told them that the alligator would be killed due to its large size and aggressive nature.
