Stray Iguana Found Roaming Dorchester

DORCHESTER (CBS) – Rescue Crews from the Animal Rescue League of Boston received a rather strange call Tuesday in Dorchester.

Someone discovered a stray iguana hiding in some bushes in the Boston neighborhood.

That person picked up the animal, put it into a basket, and alerted authorities.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston retrieved the iguana and brought it in to be examined.

Iguanas cannot typically survive for very long in New England’s climate.

It’s likely the iguana was a pet that either escaped or was released.

So far, the animal’s owner has not come forward.
