MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It was golf with a gator for some members of the Minnesota Wild.

Nino Niederreiter tweeted out a photo of the reptilian interloper as he and fellow teammates Marco Scandella, Matt Dumba and Darcy Kuemper hit the links recently.


According to the PGA, they were all there for a golf vacation in Cancun, Mexico. They’re on break for the NHL All-Star Game.

Niederreiter said that the alligator was about four feet behind them at one point, “with his mouth open the whole time.”

Talk about, um, Wild!
