A woman entered a zoo enclosure filled with alligators at the Safari North Wildlife Park in Brainerd, Minnesota, with a young boy to retrieve her wallet from the pit, TMZ reported.
The woman poked and prodded at the alligators with a long stick as her boy wandered along the interior of the pen.
Bystanders and children from the viewing perch looked on, warning the two that they’d get bitten by the alligator if they didn’t exit the enclosure quickly.
Eventually, the woman tossed several pebbles at the alligators, who were swimming in the pond, to distract them away from her pink wallet which was floating near a wooden platform on the shore.
She was able to successfully retrieve her wallet.
