Another alligator has been captured in the Chicago area.This one was in the waters of a suburban lake.

Last Saturday, someone spotted the gator sitting on a log in Lake Renwick near southwest suburban Plainfield.

On Thursday after days of waiting and baiting, officials finally caught the four-foot gator.

It's believed the alligator was once someone's pet and it just got too big to handle.

Back in June, a gator was pulled from the Chicago River on the South Side.
