New Jersey firefighters rescue 4-foot lizard from tree

May 23 (UPI) -- Firefighters in Woolwich, N.J., were called to wrangle a 4-foot lizard from a tree in a residential neighborhood.

A resident at the High Hill estate development noticed the lizard sitting in her tree in the morning and called police.

"Not your ordinary basic animal rescue assignment," the Woolwich Fire Company said.

"The lizard was transported to the county facility for a departure to a new home," the company continued.

NJ.com uploaded to YouTube video of an animal control officer wrestling the lizard down from the tree and into a cage.

In April, a British family contacted animal rescuers after returning from a trip to Florida and discovering a pair of lizards had stowed away in their luggage.
