Angry Boa Constrictor stolen in NB break-in!

A tattoo shop was broken into recently in Miramichi NB. The owners Boa Constrictor was stolen. If anyone has any information about this snake please contact crime stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS. When I speak to the owner and get more info I'll pass it along to the group.
Thanks,
Trevor

I just spoke to the owner of the Boa and tattoo shop. His name is Dwayne Hancock and his shop is called Vision Quest Tattoo and Piercing. The snake is a 3' female Colombian BCI.
Thanks,
Trevor

Another snake got stolen? There is another thread about someone's boa being stolen. Is there some huge demand for Colombian boas that I'm not aware of? Last time I checked they went for like $200 tops... I don't get it, you'd spend more on an enclosure than you would paying for the animal. Some people are just scumbags, worse than that they're scumbags that didn't even think to steal something expensive. Ever hear of a jewellery store numbnuts? lol!

Some punks probably took the boa cause they thought it was cool man!!! Trev, does the owner know for sure it was stolen? It wasn't being an escape artist??

No it was stolen along with his tattoo equipment. The cinder block thrown through the front window of his shop was his first clue something was awry. lol
Cheers,

Last year at work someone through a brick through the window of the store... all they stole was the small amount of change in the cancer donation and animal donation jars Thank goodness none of the animals were stolen... but that was one ridiculous attempt at a B&E.

Ya know when an animal is that helpless we take it to the vet and euthanize the poor thing. I hope someone shows the poor morons that did this the same compassion.lol!

Agh! That's sick....I'm with Lisa; our snakes are just like our own children to us, and I'd view as a kidnapping. I really hope that someone find that poor girl and gets her back to her owner safe and sound.
