An alligator captured the nation’s attention for seven days until being captured. Chance the Snapper, named after Chicago artist Chance the Rapper, the gator is 5 feet, 4 inches long and weighs about 40 pounds. He was first spotted in Chicago's Humboldt Park on July 9, when a photographer working a birthday party took a photo of him. Then, he became a local attraction. Chance the Snapper evaded capture until authorities called in Frank Robb, an alligator wrangler from Florida.
