It was just after 9:30pm on Monday night when Chicago Police raided the home in the 4000 block of North Troy Street.

Police wouldn’t say if anyone was home at the time, but they did call for Chicago Animal Care and Control after finding the gator inside the second-floor apartment. No one is in custody.

Chicago Animal Care and Control has taken possession of the gator, and is hoping to get it to a new home within the next day or so.

It’s unclear what condition the gator is in, or who was keeping it.

The discovery comes three weeks since the elusive alligator ‘Chance the Snapper’ was captured after a week-long hunt in the Humboldt Park Lagoon.

It’s still unknown how that 5-foot-long alligator got into the lagoon, but authorities have said it’s likely someone had been keeping it as a pet, and dumped it in the lagoon when it got too big.
