Gecko Stolen From Del. Wildlife Rescue Returns


BEAR, Del. (AP) - A gecko stolen months ago from a Delaware wildlife rescue center and presumed dead is back home.

The six-inch male African fat-tailed gecko was stolen from the Delaware Wildlife Rehabilitators Association in Bear in July. Cash from the donation box was also taken.

A woman who wanted to get rid of the gecko recently dropped it off at a pet shop, where staffers recognized him.

Given the specific care the gecko needs, wildlife rehabilitator Hilary Taylor says the odds were against him turning up again. But she says he seemed right at home when she returned him to the habitat in her office.

Taylor says she told police to drop the case, and police say the case is closed without an arrest.
