Another reason not to swim in the river

Today a live American Alligator was found in the Chicago River at Bubbly Creek! Apparently it was living happily there, with lots of fish to eat. Who knows how it got there, or how long it had been there? Its doubtful this is another sign of global warming, though, since the nearest natural habitat for wild alligators is 700-some miles downstream in northern Louisiana.
