Windy City gator

An alligator floats in the Humboldt Park Lagoon on July 9 in Chicago.

A member of the Chicago Herpetological Society, who only describes himself as "Alligator Bob," said in an interview with Chicago's Animal Care and Control that they set up three traps containing a chicken, a rat and fish to try and lure the alligator.

Bob said they believe the alligator was raised as a pet and then dumped into the lagoon.

Wooden first lady

People gather around a wooden sculpture of Melania Trump near the first lady's hometown of Sevnica, Slovenia, on July 5.

Commissioned by Berlin-based American artist Brad Downey and carved with a chainsaw by local folk artist Ales Zupevc, the statue serves as an accompaniment to Downey’s exhibition in the capital Ljubljana exploring Melania’s roots in the small Alpine country.

Although the statue’s face is rough-hewn and unrecognizable, the figure is shown clothed in the pale blue wraparound coat that Melania wore at President Trump’s inauguration.
