Ball Python poisonous
The snake is not poisonous.
The resident called police; one of the officers used a small recycling box to corral and hold the snake.
The police then called the city’s animal services department.
They came right away and rescued the animal.
Ball pythons are a bit smaller than most pythons. Ball pythons are about one metre long.
Police said that finding a snake in this way is extremely rare—it almost never happens.
The person who discovered the snake had been putting out their garbage and heard a noise; they saw a snake moving around.
The snake will be held until a good home can be found for it.
A spokesperson for the animal services department said the snake had likely been deliberately abandoned in the dumpster by someone who no longer wanted it.
The person who abandoned the python could be charged under the Animal Care Act. They could face a fine of $10, 000 and six months in jail.
Despite its ordeal, the snake was healthy and not hurt in any way.
