The notorious alligator of the Humboldt Park Lagoon in Chicago has officially been captured. He assessed the park and lagoon and ordered for the east half of the park be closed to maintain quiet conditions, in hopes that the gator would come out of hiding. "I$3 saw his eyes shine and caught him with a fishing rod".

And he said that when people ask "How do you catch an alligator?" his answer is always the same: "Just barely". "This is what I've spent every day of my life doing for the past 24 years".

A news conference is expected later Tuesday morning, July 16.

Robb, the owner of Crocodilian Specialist Services in St. Augustine, stood alongside the executive director of Chicago Animal Care and Control, Kelley Grandurski, during a press conference about the capture officials confirmed that the alligator was unharmed in the process.

Susan Horton, a veterinarian at Chicago Exotics animal hospital, told the Chicago Tribune she was anxious for the alligator's health.

According to Gandurski, the alligator, which was described as "beautiful and healthy in nature", was captured in a safe and humane manner.

Robb said he took eight laps around the lagoon and was able to track down "Chance" soon thereafter. Others took to Twitter to take part in making a meme of the animal nicknamed after Chicago-native Chance the Rapper and to comment on his fame.

"Alligators do not make good pets", said Gandurski, encouraging residents to adopt a dog or cat instead.
