40 pythons motel room: It seems that over 40 abused snakes were rescued from a motel room in Canada after the animals were being irresponsibly held together in plastic storage bins, said law officials this afternoon, Yahoo! reported this Friday, Aug. 16. The 40 pythons are all said to be in okay condition, though the animals were alleged to be in “great distress.”
The 40 pythons found trapped in a motel room were of varying lengths and sizes, anywhere from one foot to well over four feet in length. Authorities who came in to the motel on an anonymous call quickly called the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to make sure the pythons were rescued as soon as possible and put into proper care.
"The snakes were not being suitably cared for and were in distress. The anxious officers called the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals who attended and took 40 pythons into their care," police officials noted in a recent statement.
Fortunately, all of the snakes are thought to be fine with proper space, feeding, and concern, the report went on. No officials from the SPCA and the Brantford police were available for immediate comment.
According to the Canadian motel’s manager, the 40 pythons were under the care of a couple who had entered the motel room for only a single night, and had vanished by the time officials arrived yesterday morning.
The Brantford animal control bylaws reveal that pythons are not legal animals for pet or home ownership in the Brantford community.
