Just before our sudden downtime, this came in from Ann:
My husband and I just witnessed a couple abandoning an iguana near the High Point pond. They were driving a newer compact gray 4 door pickup, license was something like (WA plate that appeared to start with A). We saw them take it out of a styrofoam container and they seemed to be walking it on a leash. Next thing we knew they took off so we went over to investigate and sure enough, it was climbing the hillside just east of the pond. We called Animal Control but they were closed. Then called the Seattle Police non-emergency number and they told us they couldn’t do anything. We flagged down an officer patroling the neighborhood and she told us that she was sorry, but that there was nothing she could do. I’ll call AC again in the morning to see if they can come look for it. Just doesn’t seem right to abandon an animal that surely is going to die in our cold weather as well as put our neighborhood kids at risk of possible danger, in broad daylight and get away with it.
