An update on the missing boa constrictor story, from the Telegraph...

'Hungry' escaped snake found under kitchen sink

A missing boa constrictor that sparked a police hunt has been found – under the kitchen sink at its owner's home.

But if, as the scientists say, the threat from constrictors is "minimal", why were children in the area advised to stay indoors?

Ian: why were children in the area advised to stay indoors?

I spent 17 years teaching 11-18 year old kids in that part of Ipswich. I'd advise all adults to stay indoors.....

More propaganda from the Biased Broadcasting Corporation, intended to frighten we and to attempt to justify yet another tranche of expensive 'expert' led legislation and tax gathering licensing schemes I guess.
BTW; the wild cat (felix silvestris) has never left Britain and re-established itself in Devon in the areas used for military training by US forces in WW2.

Because children are small enough to serve as a snack to a constrictor. Adults would be more suitable for a dinner. :lol: And what happened to the snake after it was found?

Agreed. This of course is contrary to the response to the "Justice for Wilbur" petition given by the last Government, based on "scientific" advice that the threat was minimal, that's the point.

The python which killed Wilbur did so out of doors, in spite of our "temperate" climate. If it could attack a cat out of doors, what's to stop an escaped python from attacking a child out of doors?

What was that about constrictors "rapidly becoming torpid" in temperate climates? Say again?

That Canadian report sounds decidedly dodgy to me.
