Somebody probably abandoned it in the campground thinking they would just let it go not realizing when winter came the thing was done couple years ago a friend of mine son rescued a cat while we were up there icefishing in February subzero temperatures his son managed to catch the cat and took it to the vet it lost the tips of its ears to frostbite and I believe the tip of his tail they still have the cat named it LFC lucky freaking cat

I can just read the headlines now...”invasive iguana population taking hold in Colorado. Have somehow adapted to living in subzero temperatures”

Okay, I'll admit it, It was mine. My Grandpa always said "Big Fish eat Big Baits" and for years I've been trying like heck to get one of those monster pike at the Mile!
