“The snake, which appeared to be around five years old and in healthy condition, was initially taken to a rescue facility but it has since been returned to its owner.
Police have refused to release the owner’s identity because he did nothing wrong, they say”.

I'd have to remodel a bathroom. Ceramic fixtures and sheetrock walls don't take #2 buckshot well.

The snake is here legally. We’ll be posting a copy of his birth certificate on the internet, shortly.

From the local paper.....

...she called 911 and soon College Station officer Tony Gonzales arrived.

“When the officer showed up, he came with a brown paper sack,” she recalled.
“I told him, ‘you’re going to need a bigger sack than that.’”

Tell me about it!

People find ‘em in the Walmart produce section, garden centers, basements, bathrooms.

I just went looking for rat snakes in the woods.

No luck.

Sheesh!

I’m starting to think that snakes enjoy shopping.

I know that my Bob loves to shoplift stuff in PetCo.

At the checkout, I have to wrangle all the stuff he’s lifted from shelves from his coiled tail.

[I’m not sure what he was going to do with catnip mouse toy or a Hamster water bottle but he sure didn’t want to let go of them]

It’s obvious he planned to use the hamster bottle to lure neighborhood rodentia, and the cat toy to lure the neighborhood cats within coiling range. :-)

He’s been around da ebil Dobermans too long. Already you must thwart his schemes.

Good grief! I like sneks but now I'm a little afraid to go to the store. Everything in its place ya know. lol

Should I reach for an avocado and draw back a large Serpentes you will certainly be the first person I think of. At the very least the second person after I get the produce manager to scan it and tell me the price. ;-)

Well, he’s locked in a BoaMaster enclosure so his fiendish schemes are all for naught.

My question is:

How did they know it was an African snake?

Did the tribal robes give it away?
