CALGARY — The owner of a Calgary pet store is facing charges under Alberta's animal protection act after the seizure of a lizard, a tree frog and two geckos.

The Calgary Humane Society says the animals were in medical distress when they were seized from Riverfront Aquariums on June 18.

It is the third set of charges against store owner Wayne Woo in less than a year.

In May, an iguana and chameleon in medical distress were seized.

And last September nine rabbits and a bearded dragon were found to be suffering from neglect.

Woo is next to appear in court Aug. 6.
