INDICE DE GALERIAS
KINGSTON, Mass. (AP) — The hunt is on for a slithering fugitive in Kingston.
State wildlife officials say they are investigating several reports of a snake seen near the Independence Mall.
Fisheries and Wildlife assistant director Tom French says based on descriptions, they’re probably looking for a Burmese python, a legal species, or possibly a reticulated python, which is illegal in Massachusetts.
If it’s found and is a reticulated python, the incident will become a law enforcement investigation.
French tells The Patriot Ledger (http://bit.ly/16jRf9j ) it’s possible the snake is as long as 16 feet. He said eyewitnesses reported seeing a snake extend across a narrow road behind the mall area, but didn’t measure it.
He said the python most likely escaped when the owner set its cage outside in the sun.
