PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. — Pembroke Pines police officers came across a slithery surprise this week: a 7-foot boa constrictor!
Police said the large snake was found near NW 184th Ave. and NW 17th St.
The police department said the invasive snakes were introduced to South Florida by irresponsible pet owners, an action that's both illegal and inhumane.
A trapper came out and removed the boa. No word on where the snake will be taken.
Sssurprise! This 7-ft boa constrictor was found by officers near NW 184 Ave & NW 17 St. These invasive snakes were introduced to South Florida by irresponsible pet owners - an action which is both illegal & inhumane. Luckily, this snake will be safely rehomed by a trapper. 🐍 pic.twitter.com/95iaT5m9NR— Pembroke Pines PD (@PPinesPD) July 3, 2019
