The owners of Glenwood Self Storage Center in Colorado, Colo., emptied several units yesterday in search of a snake, which was never found. The two-foot serpent could have been a python or a bull snake, based on the description provided by one of the facility’s tenants, who found it lying across some of his boxes yesterday morning. By the time the city’s animal-control officer arrived, it had slithered off.
Facility owners Jim and Ingrid Hawkins are unsure where the snake came from, but they do not allow pets to be stored on the property, they said. None of the tenants they contacted admitted to keeping a pet python. Bull snakes are common to the area.
If the snake is found and is a python, it will be taken to Colorado Animal Rescue.
