Colo. Deputies Seek 6-Foot Lizard

July 17, 2012  | 

Teller County (Colo.) Sheriff's deputies are on the lookout for a six-foot, 25-pound Nile Monitor lizard that's been on the loose since midday Monday.

The sheriff's office made reverse 911 calls to the apartment complex where the lizard escaped to warn residents to keep small dogs and cats within fenced-in areas, reports the Gazette.

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.
