Animal Watch
Boa Finds New Home Is Quite Commodious

Sunday, August 30, 2009

SILVER SPRING, Delancy Dr., 400 block, Aug. 13. A homeowner called Animal Services to report a snake in a toilet. An investigator confirmed that a small boa constrictor had made itself at home in the toilet bowl. The reptile was taken to the shelter for care. Investigators learned that the homeowner was renting a room to a tenant who kept a snake without the owner's knowledge. The snake apparently escaped from its cage and set up residence in the toilet. The homeowner banned the snake, and it was made available for adoption.
