Default Alligator on the Loose in Chicago.

Today is his third day lagoon cruisin'. An alligator "hunter" has been hired to no avail.

People have proposed draining the entire lagoon, electroshocking it and covering the 8 acres of water with netting, Alligator Bob said.

“We’re open to suggestions,”

The alligator now has a name and a song written about it. Make room Larry.

Why not just wait for winter? That would be the cheapest way.

Al E. Gator has been big news in Chicago the past few days. Several traps have been set in the Humboldt Park Lagoon with no success yet. The theory is Mr./Ms. Gator was someone's pet, and when he/she reached the size of 4 feet, wasn't so "cute" any more and was dumped into the lagoon.

Hope they can save Al E. Gator.

I think that is the goal to capture the alligator alive and turn it over to an alligator sanctuary. Some news outlets here in Chicago are calling him or her Chance the Snapper, after Chance the Rapper

Well, it took an expert from Florida to capture the alligator which is going to live out its life in a zoo there.

The expert from Florida who captured Chance The Snapper early this morning will throw out the first pitch at the Cubs game tonight. Chance appeared at a press conference this morning.

The word on the street is that Chance is in the market for a 2 bedroom courtyard villa near several executive golf courses and easy access to restaurants. Golf cart would be nice, but not a deal breaker. 😄😄

I thought you were kidding about last night's game. BTW, Cubs won 4-3. Also nice to know that a sanctuary is in Chance's future rather than a zoo.

A fun video is in this link:
