Police found and rescued 40 pythons in motel room in Canada. The animals were found in a Brantford, Ontario hotel room near Toronto. According to the Toronto Star on Aug. 16, 2013, they ranged from one to four-and-a-half feet long and were kept inside of plastic bins.
A manager at the Bell City Motel said the snakes belonged to a local couple who had been evicted by their landlord who also informed local police that they had taken their snakes to the motel.
The 40 pythons in a motel room were taken into the care of the local SPCA. After being examined by a veterinarian, it was determined that the snakes would be fine. The SPCA continues to investigate
The couple that owned the 40 pythons in the motel room was out for diner when police arrived. It is illegal to own a python anywhere in Canada except for New Brunswick where two young boys were suffocated as reported previously in, "Boa constrictor kills two kids in Canada." The snake that was originally reported to have been a boa constrictor was actually an African rock python. The boys were both killed when the snake escaped from its enclosure at night.
