It’s not everyday a pet dog encounters a lizard of similar size to themselves in their own backyard. On Sunday evening, a pitbull/boxer mix in Willis, Texas experienced that when she was let outside for a bathroom break. Owner Molly Doughtery left her dog Nola with her parents for the weekend while she attended a birthday celebration out of town. She received a call from her mother on Sunday evening as she was boarding her flight to return home, “screaming that Nola has been attacked by a very large lizard.” Nola and the lizard apparently engaged in combat at some point, as the family found bloodstains on their fence and Nola was left with wounds to “her face, head, and chest, and limping in her hind leg” because of the attack. The vet treatment added up to $3,000.
