Caiman alligator caught in Lake Michigan


It is not every day someone reports an alligator in Lake Michigan and the report is true. This time the call was followed up with video of this four foot alligator slowly swimming in the Lake. Much thanks to the person who reported it, Waukegan Police Animal Control and staff at Larsen Marine Service, Inc. (LMS) for the safe and successful rescue. The alligator is being transported to the Wildlife Discovery Center in Lake Forest.

This four-foot long caiman alligator was recovered in Lake Michigan this weekend. Picture: Facebook

Alligators are rarely found in the Great Lakes. Although some alligators thrive in freshwater, it’s just too cold in the north for them to survive. They don’t typically live farther north than North Carolina.

It’s unclear how the alligator arrived to Lake Michigan.
