PANAMA CITY, Fla.- Two college students on spring break have been arrested for taunting and trying to steal the live alligators at a Panama City restaurant's pond.

The Panama City News Herald reported Friday that restaurant employees called police after they found the two 20-year-olds using raw chicken on a rope to taunt the animals.

The University of Alabama and University of West Georgia students were charged with felony burglary on Tuesday. They were released from jail later that day. It wasn't immediately known if they had attorneys.

According to an arrest report, the spring breakers planned the gator heist by visiting a hunting store and buying the rope and hooks.
