When’s the last time you checked on your snake?
We only ask because Saanich police found what is believed to be a three-foot-long California King snake in someone’s backyard Sunday.
A resident of the 900-block of McBriar Ave. called police after spotting the reptile slithering across his property.
Once on the scene, officers quickly cornered the non-venomous suspect in a garbage can and hauled it in to the CRD animal shelter.
If you are the snake’s owner, or know anyone who is missing a snake, please contact the shelter at 250-658-5745 or Saanich police at 250-475-4321.
