A Connecticut State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officer rescued an exotic snake from a yard in Avon on Saturday.
According to a Facebook post on the Connecticut State Environmental Conservation Police page, Officer Yescott “put his Reptile Capture Training to good use” after he was called to a home in Avon after a homeowner spotted a snake sunning itself in the yard.
Officials said the snake is a Jungle Carpet Python, a species native to Australia.
Off. Yescott put his Reptile Capture Training to good use today. A homeowner in Avon found this Jungle Carpet Python sunning itself in their yard. Obviously this species is not native to Connecticut and was someone’s exotic pet.
