Players of Pokemon Go are finding critters everywhere, including some places that are considered to be hallowed ground and inappropriate for gaming.

CLARKSBORO, N.J. — A New Jersey woman was rescued Tuesday after she got stuck in a tree while searching for Pokemon, WSB-TV reports.

The Pokemon Go phone app has been nothing short of a success for Nintendo and its fans since its American release on July 6 and the amount of news stories that have come from the sensation has been massive.

Authorities say they responded to a “Pokemon stuck in a tree, along with the person who was chasing it” call on Tuesday and found the woman up in a tree.

The firemen set up a ladder to get her out and the woman was not hurt.

“For all those out there playing ‘Pokemon Go,’ take heed of all of the warnings and be careful not to put yourself into bad situations,” said fire department officials. “Think about what you are doing and where you are going before you actually do it.”
