Who Do I Belong To? Lost Lemur Found In Southwest Ranches

DAVIE (CBSMiami) -- Signs for lost dogs and cats are quite common around South Florida, but police in Davie are trying to find the owners of a lost lemur.

The lemur, with a ringed-tail and large eyes, was found in the area of Stirling Road and SW 130 Avenue in Southwest Ranches, according to police.

A lemur isn't a normal house pet.  They are native to Madagascar and they aren't supposed to make good pets because they could be difficult to handle and can bite.
