Snakes in a bin

April 12th 2013


An innovative luggage storage facility for use by homeless people in Venice, Los Angeles, (see The Pavement March issue) had more than luggage left in it in early March.

Workers found a large snake in one of the wheelie bin storage containers.

The local authority's animal services went to the container which can be used to store luggage, after a worker reported seeing a python or boa constrictor.

The workers were going through belongings in storage, which the female owner hadn't collected for a week, when they came across the hungry reptile.
