Authorities have released a series of images of a woman they believe discarded a small, sickly alligator at O'Hare International Airport earlier this month. Security footage shows the woman boarding a Chicago Transit Authority train on Nov. 1, carrying the reptile. She's seen talking on the phone with the critter in hand before she leaves about an hour later without the alligator. A maintenance worker found two foot long animal under an escalator at Terminal 3. A local rescue group has nicknamed the gator "Allie." Volunteers at the Chicago Herpetological Society are rehabilitating the reptile.
