AUTHORITIES have released a series of images of a woman they believe discarded a small, sickly alligator at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport earlier this month.

Security footage shows the woman boarding a train on November 1, carrying the reptile under her arm. She's seen chatting on the phone with the alligator in her hand and on her knee before she leaves the train at O'Hare an hour later.

She's later spotted boarding a train near the airport without the alligator.

The two-foot-long alligator was captured hours later after a maintenance worker found it under an escalator at Terminal 3.

Nicknamed "Allie" by a local rescue group, the reptile is being rehabilitated by volunteers at the Chicago Herpetalogical Society.
