Fugitive Komodo Dragon on the Loose?

The New Zealand Herald reports that a rogue Komodo Dragon has been terrorizing locals of Papua New Guinea's second largest city Lae. The dragon (or maybe two) had possibly escaped from an expatriate who was keeping it illegally at his home.
Morobe Province office has organised a hunt and believe several sighting by locals could mean two lizards are on the loose.

Dr Gae Gowae from PNG's Department of Environment and said it was an unusual case because the endangered species was found on Komodo Island in Indonesia.
