RYE, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire had their hands full after a pet iguana got loose and bit a cyclist.

Officers responded after the cyclist tried lassoing the roaming reptile with a leash Monday morning in Rye. Police safely caught the iguana and found its owner by posting on social media.

The 10-year-old iguana, whose name is Mr. Jingles, was reunited with its owner Brenda Schultz, who tells WMUR-TV she's grateful someone saw her pet after he slipped out of a hole in a window screen.

The cyclist who tried corralling Mr. Jingles wasn't seriously hurt.

Police say no charges will be filed against the owner.
