Boa Constrictor found at Airport

A five foot boa constrictor was found crawling around a Super Shuttle Airport van at Tampa International Airport on Sunday afternoon.

Lt. Natalie Brown with Tampa Fire Rescue volunteered to catch the snake after hearing the call go out over the Airport Police radio. Lt. Brown went to the cell phone lot at TIA and found the snake outside of the shuttle. She captured the snake with a pillow case borrowed from a co-worker’s bed.

Brown still has the snake and is hoping that the rightful owner comes forward. She said she does know of someone who is interested in keeping the snake if the owners are not found.
