The Washington Post story “A large lizard was seen eating a dead and defenseless dog in southern Arizona” by Chris Wesseling and Lauren Wesselings is about to become an internet sensation.
The story comes from an account of a “dog lover” named Joe.
Joe, who asked to be identified only as Joe, said he was eating a dog in a wooded area about 50 yards from his home when a large lizard appeared from the woods.
“I had a hard time knowing if it was real or not,” Joe said.
“The lizard just started crawling towards me.”
Joe then heard a crunching noise and looked up to see a large creature crawling towards him.
Joe said he screamed and jumped up to grab his dog’s collar.
He said the lizard then jumped into his yard and began licking its paws.
After Joe got home, he called the Humane Society and reported the incident.
A spokesman for the animal control agency said he has not heard from Joe about the incident, and has not yet heard from the owners of the animal.
Another account of the incident has since gone viral on social media, including this one on Reddit: A big lizard, the size of a small dog, is eating the face of a defenestrated dog.
(via Reddit) The Washington Post article “Lizards are getting big, and that’s a good thing” by Lauren Wetherings and Chris Wessings is an excellent article about how to live life in a lizard-friendly society.
It’s a well-written piece that makes the point that living in a reptile-friendly environment is actually a good way to live your life.
I’ve been to several reptile parks in the US, and while I’m not sure how many people know that I’ve been living in the woods, I can tell you that the majority of people I meet with are very happy with the fact that I live in a place where I can go on a hike in the middle of the night, and not worry about getting a lizard bite.
Lizards have a very special place in the American psyche, and a lot of people who are very active outdoors feel the same way about living in nature as I do.
It’s easy to forget that we’re in a world of predators that prey on humans, but we can still enjoy our own natural beauty.
For example, we’re not supposed to be eating snakes or scorpions, but it’s just part of life.
