Here's how giant monitor lizard at Yishun was caught

A video showing how the large monitor lizard that appeared at a Yishun housing block lift lobby on Saturday (Sep 21) was caught has gone viral online.

Earlier, two STOMPers had wrote in about the large reptile and how its appearance in a housing estate frightened a few residents there.

The two minute-long video, uploaded on facebook by a netizen known as Niselle Smithshop, shows two men successfully restraining the animal by using a combination of a lasso pole and a gunny sack.

In the span of two days, the video has attracted over 500 likes, as well as over 4,000 shares on the social networking portal.
