WHITEWATER, Wis. - Thanks to some quick-thinking, a boa constrictor that has been on the loose in Whitewater since July 5 is back with its owner.
According to the Jefferson Daily Union, the snake was first reported missing during a vandalism incident.
A city employee saw the 6 to 7-foot-long Red Tail Colombian Boa Constrictor while she was walking a nature preserve Wednesday morning.
Whitewater Park and Streets Superintendent Chuck Nass then located and contained the snake until police and the owner arrived.
