Cape Breton Post - - CANADA -

GUELPH, Ont. — Of­fi­cials at an On­tario univer­sity say a snake that went miss­ing on cam­pus last week has been found. The small ball python was re­ported miss­ing at the Univer­sity of Guelph last Thurs­day af­ter a stu­dent brought it to cam­pus in a back­pack. “The snake wasn’t do­ing well, and the in­ten­tion was to take it on to the vet,” univer­sity spokes­woman Lori Bona Hunt said Mon­day. “When (the stu­dent) set the back­pack down, the snake got out.” The four-year-old python “sud­denly ap­peared” on Sun­day in the Univer­sity Cen­tre, a build­ing that houses the school’s ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fices, cafe­te­ria and food court, Bona Hunt said. The stu­dents who no­ticed the snake called cam­pus po­lice, who put the python in a box and took it to the univer­sity’s vet­eri­nary col­lege for an ex­am­i­na­tion, she said. The python will be re­turned to its owner af­ter vets give it the all clear, she said.
