A much subdued lizard was captured today after a days-long standoff.
"He was cold and hungry," explained Melanie McCann in whose closet the lizard "Lee" had been hiding out.
According to a witness at the scene, Lizard entered the house 7 days ago. Lady Jane Grey, McCann's feline roommate, chased Lee Lizard into the closet where he remained holed up and inaccessible for most of the week.
McCann assumed that Lee had escaped the residence, but renewed interest by Jane Grey alerted her to Lizard's continued presence. McCann and Jane Grey mounted a full-scale offensive, removing all contents from the closet and cornering Lee behind a roll of paper. McCann took Lee into custody in a washcloth while Jane Grey provided backup.
"Yow!" commented Jane Grey.
Lee Lizard is currently recuperating outdoors on a warm washcloth near a party cup with a bit of water. McCann hopes that he will recover, but when questioned, Jane Grey licked her lips.
