The lizard was an unwelcome customer for Heatherly.
“It freaked me out,” he mentioned. “I mentioned ‘That’s a primary, a lizard at my entrance door.’”
The reptile didn’t keep for lengthy: Heatherly instructed the station it rushed inside a canine home.
“I figured it was hungry ‘trigger it was consuming the cat meals, so I went and acquired some apples and oranges, threw it within the canine home and put a block of wooden there,” he mentioned, including that he contacted the Humane Society.
The Michigan Humane Society is asking the proprietor of the lizard to contact the group, the place it was transported, or animal management in Dearborn Heights.
