It's not every day law enforcement is called to help a pet owner find their lost pet. But when it is a 10 foot, red tail, boa constrictor it perks our attention. That is what brought us to 825 Treewood Lane SE in Salem. The owners of the snake say it has been missing for about four days and it may have slithered out a second story window.
The owners called deputies because of the size of the 23 year old, female snake, appropriately named nomad and its close proximity to other residences. Deputies have searched the area but were unable to locate the snake. Residents close to the home are being contacted by deputies and made aware of the situation. We are asking other residents to be mindful of their pets and small children until the snake can be located.
The snake is green and tan and despite its name does not have a red tail. If you locate the snake please call the Sheriff's Office at 503-588-5032.
