Quote of the Day, So. There’s A Monitor Lizard Loose In Minnesota edition.

And the Champlin, Minnesota police department is ready:

If anyone sees the animal, please call the police department, with the post adding, “Our community service officer has studied and trained diligently for years for this exact situation, and he is ready to take this creature safely into custody.”

Via @fadeaccompli. Note: I am in no way, shape, or form making fun of the Champlin police for being enthusiastic about tracking, finding, and securing an escaped monitor lizard. If I was on that job, I’d be enthusiastic about it, too. I mean, are you doing anything cooler than that this afternoon?

  1. Reminds me of my days working security:
    “Have fun at work today!”
    “If I have fun at work, something has gone horribly, horribly wrong.”

    1. My standard goodbye at airport security is “I wish you a boring day.” I think I have only once had the agent even blink at it.

  2. As I’m pretty sure monitor lizards aren’t adapted for Minnesota winters .. ‘s merciful to try to catch the wee beastie before September.

  3. That’s the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered reptile you ever set eyes on!
    Look, that lizard’s got a vicious streak a mile wide! It’s a killer!
    I’m warning you!
    He’s got huge, sharp– eh– he can leap about– look at the bones!

  4. I like the cut of this guy’s jib if he’s been preparing to catch a monitor lizard. I mean, I just evaluate buildings for zombie apocalypse hideout suitability.

    1. Methinks there are probably a lot of bad aussie accents in play at the moment.

  5. That guy has invested a significant part of his life preparing himself for just this challenge. It would be criminal to deny him the chance to test himself against it.

    Good Luck, pal.
