After eluding critter control for several days and creating much commotion on Winthrop University's campus, an escaped iguana was finally captured Thursday afternoon. Shawn Carroll of A1 Wildlife Control chased the four-foot iguana out of a pine tree near the campus entrance. Iggy, who escaped from an open window at a nearby residence, was unharmed. His owner claimed him soon after the capture.
