CORPUS CHRISTI -- A local man spotted a three foot iguana chilling out in his front yard this afternoon so he called animal control.
The lizard was fast and not easy to catch.
But the animal control officer came up with an intricate plan on how to capture the iguana.
He said, "I guess I was trying to wear him out so I stand a chance at catching him."
We'll get back to that "capture" in just a bit.
First, let's tell you about how the iguana was spotted.
Steven Ziegler said, "We were in here watching television and we hear a knock on the door."
It was just a normal Saturday afternoon at the Ziegler household on Montclair Drive until a neighbor kid comes to tell them: there's a lizard on the loose.
Steven said, "Low and behold there he is laying in the front yard."
So Steven called animal control and although the iguana didn't want to be caught, the officer would eventually get the better hand.
The officer says the lizard is probably someone's pet.
But if no one claims him, animal control will try to find the guy a new home.
Steven's just glad that home won't be in his front yard.
He said, "I'll sleep easier tonight."
