After almost a week on the run, the 5-foot-long alligator causing havoc in Chicago's Humboldt Park has finally been found, according to authorities. After local enthusiasts tried and failed to trap the reptile, Frank Robb arrived from St Augustine on Sunday.

"Chance the Snapper" is no longer swimming free in the Humboldt Park Lagoon.

"The Humboldt Park alligator has captured the imaginations of the entire city of Chicago and beyond and has united residents who have been following this story for the last week", Chicago Animal Care and Control said in a news release, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"I brought my fishing rod and it went down pretty fast", Robb said at a news conference at the park on Tuesday morning. Then he reeled Chance in, grabbed ahold of him and tied him up. Investigators don't know why the animal was in the lagoon but they knew they had to capture it.

The city has said it is already looking for roomier quarters, most likely a wildlife sanctuary or a zoo.

Alligator captured in Chicago on July 16, 2019. Reptilian Chance is believed to be four-to-five feet long, and officials promise that he will not be killed now that he is captured.

The elusive animal got his name from an online contest.
