The ball python snake that was reported missing in August has been found deceased.

On August 19, 2020 the snake was reported to have been lost in the area of Marigold Road and Jasmine Avenue. It was in the same area on Sunday September 6, 2020 that a homeowner noticed a snake on their property and called the Saanich Police. It was discovered that the snake was in fact a ball python and had been dead for quite some time.

Saanich Police contacted the owner who was then able to confirm that the snake was in fact theirs and the one that was reported missing.
