Look Out! 6-Ft. Long Pet Boa Constrictor Escapes in Ohio

A 6-ft.-long pet boa constrictor accidentally slithered away from its Ohio owner on Sunday, and local police are currently on the lookout for the creature.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, the snake escaped from its owner in Delhi Township over the weekend while it was outside being fed; the owner later realized it "wandered off."

The report says that the Department of Agriculture advised that this type of snake – which is permitted as a pet in Ohio – tends to scurry away from people or commotion. But authorities also caution that the snake will want to snuggle somewhere warm in cold temperatures, so home snake checks are advised.
