Oh Yeah... Keep your dogs, cats and kids inside their small fenced yards... that will just make it easier for the monitor to chomp on the pets and kids...
Monitor bites are really nasty and hard to disinfect. You can figure on getting a nasty infection at the least and losing body parts or more at the worst... Shoot the damn thing.
