Boa Constrictor Invades Fla. Neighborhood

BOCA RATON, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A five-foot-long boa constrictor has invaded an upscale neighborhood, according to WFLX.

“I think it’s huge,” Becky Davis, a resident in the neighborhood, told the station. “I’ve lived here 20 years. I’ve never seen a snake like that.”

Residents do not only have to worry about themselves being bitten, but also their pets.

“These are animals that are either intentionally released or escaped from somebody,” David Hitzig from the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter told WFLX.

Hitzig does not believe that the snake will be a threat to humans. He added that the snake will most likely hunt indigenous species.

A spokesperson from the Boca Raton Police Department said they will call a trapper if the snake is spotted again.

There have been no reported injuries to any residents or pets.
