CHICAGO, IL (WGNTV)- Passengers at O’hare got a good laugh, after a slight scare, when an alligator was found at the airport.

The small gator was roaming around Terminal 3 Friday, when it was spotted by a passenger. Department of Aviation workers caught it using a broom and dustpan.

Then, Chicago Police held it for the city’s Animal Control Department. No one knows where it came from.

But a picture posted on Twitter earlier in the day shows a rider on the CTA’s Blue Line, which goes to O’hare, carrying an alligator.
