Alligators.

Shared this in the CC Garden Club-

 

from the 'PointsGuy'-

 

Alligator On The Loose In Chicago O’Hare Airport Is Caught: While dogs are an increasingly common sight in airports, an alligator is one creature that you don’t want to find in a terminal. Flyers at Chicago O’Hare had a scaly encounter when a two-foot creature was on the loose on Friday, tweeted @TodayInTheSky. A passenger spotted the alligator under an escalator and quickly alerted a security guard, who was on patrol in Terminal 3 at the time. Officers eventually captured the reptile by placing a trash can over it. They then called the Chicago Herpetological Society, which now has possession of the animal. WBBM reported that “a major clue to how it ended up at the airport emerged on Twitter on Friday when someone posted photos of a man holding what appeared to be the same alligator.”

 

I assume it was ERTs response to get someone who jumped the fence, i bet that person was in biiigggg trouble.

Re: Alligators.

Was expecting this to be about Florida - not Chicago.

 

My high school in Miami had this unused and disgusting fountain on the grounds. As a senior prank, some kids caught an adolescent alligator and put it in the pond. They had to call animal services and closed that part of the school down.

Re: Alligators.

We had one show up in an old storage building at my office near the coast.   Had to get the wildlife folks out there to remove his 7 ft self.   Went to Florida back in 91 or 92  (Tampa) and during a round of golf, we had to dodge gators and geese lol.

Re: Alligators.

If you go to Everglades National Park, they are everywhere. Usually basking by the paths. Rule is - you don't get to close, and they don't get to close.

Re: Alligators.

I think an aligator is calm next to those deadly, ankle attacking geese.  I had to jump on a cars hood to stop the little chompers.
