American Alligator Found in Lake Michigan!

Well that's not something you see everyday...

An alligator is recovering after being found in Lake Michigan! The reptile was discovered by a kayaker fishing in Waukegan. At the first, the kayaker thought it was a dead fish floating on top of the water... But boy was he in for a surprise! The alligator was helpless- his snout had been taped closed and he needed help. The kayaker, David Castenda, called authorities and helped rescue the little gator. 

The gator was likely kept as a pet and recently dumped.
