(right) are seen guiding a Komodo dragon to safety after the ten-foot-long lizard was found attending a city council meeting yesterday. Both women, who claimed to be uneasy around reptiles, intervened upon seeing people running from city hall. "The politicians were the first ones out the door," stated a witness. "Then these two women went inside and emerged after a few minutes with this really-big lizard." The Komodo dragon, perhaps sensing it was at last among friends, accompanied the two women to a bus stop. All three boarded the next bus and proceeded to the zoo, where the Komodo dragon balked until both women made asssurances the zoo would be a good home. The mayor was unavailable for comment.
