According to SAPD, a woman called the station around 2:30 p.m. saying that her neighbor found a chameleon on her fence. The woman is holding the lizard while SAPD works to reunite it with its owner.

This is not the first time an exotic animal has been found in the area. In April, a wallaby was found hopping around a St. Albans neighborhood.

Anyone with information about the chameleon should contact SAPD’s Humane Officer at (304) 727-2251.
