Chicago Animal Care and Control(CHICAGO) — An alligator was captured in Humboldt Park Lagoon in Chicago early Tuesday morning, one week after the reptile was first spotted there.The gator, nicknamed “Chance the Snapper,” was hiding in the lily pads when he was caught safely and unharmed at about 1:30 a.m., officials said.Expert Frank Robb, who traveled to- Chicago from Florida to help capture the animal, said he reeled Chance in from the shore and then “grabbed ahold of him.”Robb presented Chance to captivated reporters at the Humboldt Park Boathouse Tuesday morning, ending the unusual, week-long hunt.The gator is about 5 feet long and weighs about 30 to 40 pounds, Robb said. He appears healthy, officials said.Chance was believed to have been a pet that someone dropped off at the lagoon, Jenny Schlueter, a spokeswoman for Chicago Animal Care and Control, told ABC News last week. After days of searching, the area around the lagoon was closed Monday in the hopes that the quiet would help lure the animal out of hiding.The gator will eventually go to a zoo or sanctuary, officials said.

By AFP November 27, 2019 On November 25, Colombia’s immigration authorities reported the deportation of 59 Venezuelans for allegedly planning to disrupt “national security” during protests against the Iván Duque government, which started November 21.The foreigners accused of “threatening public order and national security,” will be turned over to Venezuelan authorities in San Fernando de Atabapo (in the southwest).“We have respected their participation in protests. We have helped those who, like the Venezuelan people, were in need. But we will not tolerate a group of misfits coming to undermine the security of our cities,” said Christian Krüger, head of Migration Colombia, in a press release.According to Krüger, the foreigners’ actions create “xenophobic outbursts” that “give a bad name to the Venezuelans who are working for a better country.”The head of police had reported that 29 Venezuelans were arrested during the curfews in Bogotá and Cali for disobeying the order.Additionally, before the protest on November 21, President Iván Duque had announced the expulsion of 24 foreigners from the same country for allegedly planning to infiltrate the protest.With the opposition’s support, trade union workers, students, indigenous people, and artists exerted pressure in the streets over Duque’s conservative government, which appears weaker 18 months after he took office.Due to the widespread turmoil in the streets, the head of government led an initial “social dialogue” on November 24, although protesters did not participate, and another protest was organized.The Duque government has joined the United States in the diplomatic efforts to force Nicolás Maduro to relinquish power.
