    They had to bring in a southerner to do it. They couldn’t handle it.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    The male gator, nicknamed “Chance the Snapper,” was first spotted in the Humboldt Park lagoon about a week ago. After local enthusiasts tried and failed to trap the reptile, Frank Robb arrived from St. Augustine on Sunday. By early Tuesday, he had caught the 5 foot 3 inch animal using something that even cartoon alligators know to avoid: a fishing pole.

    “I brought my fishing rod and it went down pretty fast,” Robb said. At about 1:30 a.m. — about 36 hours into the hunt — Robb said he “saw his eye shine and caught him on the fishing rod. One cast … and it was done.”

    Chance — whose name sounds a lot like Chicago’s own Chance the Rapper — looked pretty calm as Robb pulled him out of a big plastic tub, and he didn’t squirm as he settled into Robb’s grip. Robb moved around a bit so all the photographers from pretty much every newspaper and television news show snapped pictures — Chance couldn’t do any snapping of his own thanks to what looked like a thick rubber band or electrical tape holding his jaw shut tight.

    Chance will stay in the tub for now, but the city said it was already looking for roomier quarters, most likely a wildlife sanctuary or a zoo.
    I like the other two suggested monikers for the gator. Ruth Gator Ginsburg or Croc Obama.

    Is Chicago moving to the Everglades?

    CHICAGO — Chicago isn’t quite ready to say see you later, alligator.

    The Chicago Sun-Times reports that officers serving a search warrant at a Northwest Side house found a 3-foot alligator along with some guns and drugs. They turned the alligator over to animal control.

    The discovery comes about a month after an alligator swimming around a city park lagoon captured the attention of the city for about a week before the alligator, dubbed Chance the Snapper, was captured by a gator hunter who was flown in from Florida.

    And a couple weeks ago, two brothers posted a Facebook video in which they claimed to have found another alligator in the lagoon, though police suspect they put the gator in the lagoon themselves.
