Snakes on a high street

Vocable (Anglais) - - Société Education -

This sum­mer, a boa constric­tor was spot­ted ea­ting a pi­geon on the pa­ve­ment of a bu­sy east Lon­don high street. Ap­pal­led and amu­sed bys­tan­ders took vi­deos of the ani­mal be­fore cal­ling the RSPCA. Ac­cor­ding to re­ports, one of the bys­tan­ders had fed the al­rea­dy-dead pi­geon to the snake. Other ur­ban es­ca­pist snakes made the head­lines this sum­mer, in­clu­ding a 2.4 metre py­thon that was found in a blind man’s ba­throom in Exe­ter.
