Now Where Did I Put That Darn Iguana? (1 Update)
South-Side Ypsilanti resident and YpsiNews.com managing editor Steve Pierce sent an interesting inquiry via email today:
If you lost an iguana (we think that is what it is) I may know where it is. Give me a brief description of what it looks like and where you last had it. ~Steve

If the AWOL iguana is not claimed, perhaps there is a new belt or a pair of boots in Mr. Pierce’s future.

Approximately 20 responses were received regarding the little lost lizard. This impressed Steve Pierce because as he put it, “You know, when you are the guy that wrote the (April Fools Day) stories about crocodiles in Riverside Park and oil discovered at Water Street… well, it is fair that some were skeptical about a report of a lost iguana.” (http://ypsinews.com/index.php/200804-crocodile-spotted-in-riverside-park)
According to Pierce, the iguana’s owner has been found. The owner was able to ID “Marissa” from pictures. Marissa has been missing since May 28, 2010 and began her journey in the Normal Park area. To make her way to Ypsilanti’s south side neighborhood, she would’ve had to cross busy Michigan Avenue. Well done, Marissa!
Although the iguana’s owner has been found, the iguana herself has eluded capture so far. Apparently it’s not easy to track a green iguana in a green tree.
YpsiNews.com does not anticipate CNN trucks lining the streets and doubts Nancy Grace will be reporting from Ypsilanti. However, a small volunteer watch has been formed to locate Marissa. YpsiNews.com will keep you posted on the Great Ypsilanti Iguana Hunt.
If you happen to spot “Marissa”, please contact YpsiNews.com and be informed that Marissa likes cream cheese.
