No tickets were issued to the owner for letting his snake get loose, and that prompted Beard to suggest the South Elgin village board consider enacting stricter laws to penalize pet owners who don't keep them restrained.
i can agree 100% with that! if cities have problem with snakes getting lose they should punish the owner insted of just completely banning an entire family of snakes. on another point how did this snake get out of his house? or even out of the room the snake was in? it seems like it would be pretty hard for a 6 foot bci (or bcc) to slide under a door crack??? this escape could have been easly prevented but hey, we are all human and we will all make mistakes some of use might not make as big of mistakes as others but a mistake is a mistake none the less.
