Pair of Boa Constrictors on the Lose in Bourbon, Missouri
Residents of a small eastern Missouri town are on edge after two large boa constrictors escaped from a home.
KSDK reportsthat a 10-foot female escaped three weeks ago, possibly from an open window in the trailer where it lived near Bourbon. A 9 1/2-foot male escaped Sunday night.
The trailer park offers plenty of hiding spaces, including crawl spaces under every trailer and surrounding woods.
Reluctant officers from the Crawford County sheriff's office searched the trailer Monday and found two sizable snake skins, which showed the snakes spent time loose in the trailer.
Both snakes are red tailed boa constrictors. Experts say they're not venomous but still dangerous.
