Glad there was a happy ending to that story. He's really lucky to have gotten her back.

Who the hell would steal a massive boa like that and why? I mean my philosophy is that it's wrong to steal but if you must be a thief at least be ambitious enough to be a bank robber or stock broker. Wouldn't it be much easier to break in to a high end BP morph collection and get a bunch of animals that are worth a tonne of money? I mean what is a big boa like that worth these days, a couple hundred bucks maybe? Yet another example of why it should be illegal to be so stupid. Give him a year in jail for the theft plus another two for aggravated criminal stupidity. Maybe this guy should be sterilized too to protect the human gene pool but maybe I'm getting carried away...
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...

Before I adopted my iguana Roxy, she was stolen from the previous owner.

Someone broke in the window, rolled her up in a carpet and took her home. The police got her back and what not though. But that's the height of stupidity. You can't even pay people to take iguanas but this dumba$$ stole one. lol

Just because I'm open minded enough to look at this from some different views, maybe this thief ain't such a bad guy. Don't get me wrong I hate thieves, but maybe he was trying to do the snake a favour? We have all seen animals kept in horrid conditions before & even I myself have said how I would like to just grab them & take them to a better place. I am bothering to post this just to show you all your basic nature. You all assume buddy is just a scumbag thief right away (chances are) but maybe, just maybe he did it out of compassion for the animal. It says that another "friend" ratted buddy out. The media story doesn't give but 1 view of the situation. The guy could be a misguided hero as far as we know. We all assume the worst of him right away, whereas maybe the other guy is actually the bad guy. Not saying buddy was right to take it, but unless he is a ****** maybe there is a valid reason that we will never know. Just wanted to show everyone that a little understanding & empathy may be in order more often & how quick we all are to judge others.

On the other hand, a boys father was at the Calgary Fall TARAS show with handouts looking for his stolen Jungle corn & tank etc. He talked to every single vendor. It was stolen in a B&E. He would not take a snake from anyone, even though he was offered lots of nice ones by many people for free. He was even offering a reward. He just wanted his kids pet back. The same man had flyers up at every pet store in the city looking also. This guy is a true hero. This snake could have been replaced multiple times over for free, but there was only one snake that would be accepted back, his kids. Now this thief was definitely a scumbag. If only there could be more people like this kids father in the world.

Gonesnakee, you do have a point. There is another thread going somewhere here right now about a herp being left to die in horrible conditions & many people from this same site have talked about banging the door down to rescue it. The very brief story about this stolen boa does not give any details at all & it might well be that the "thief" was trying to rescue a herp from cruel or inhumane conditions, rather than steal.
