According to KLTV and KCEN, police in Henderson, Texas, responded Wednesday morning to a Tex-Mex restaurant on U.S. Route 79 after an 8-foot-long alligator was spotted in the parking lot.

“What an exciting morning Henderson had,” Henderson police wrote in a Facebook post. “This alligator said ‘see ya later!’ to Willow Creek Lake and stopped at Jucy’s Taco for a quick taco before being transported to an undisclosed location by Texas Game Warden.”

Officials said the gator traveled about 500 feet from the lake, which is behind the restaurant, KCEN reported.

Rusk County Game Warden Kirk Permenter told KLTV that authorities relocated the alligator to a swampy area by the Sabine River.
