Canada: Dozens of snakes uncovered in motel room

Text size Aa Aa

Police have found 40 distressed pythons in a motel room in Canada.

Officers said the slithery creatures – ranging from 30 centimetres to 1.37 metres in length – were being improperly held in plastic storage cases at the Bell City motel in Brantford, around 100 kilometres southwest of Toronto.

A manager at the motel said the snakes belonged to a couple who had checked into a room for one night, and who were out when police arrived on Thursday evening.

Pythons are not legal for home ownership in Brantford, according to the city’s animal control bylaws.
