Some people in Janesville try to slither past an ordinance banning exotic and vicious pets. Following to a neighbor's complaint, Janesville police responded to a home to with 22 boa constrictors. Deputy Police Chief Steve Kopp says what makes it even more unusual is, earlier in the week, officers responded to a similar complaint. In the earlier case, the humane society got word of neglect on two restricting snakes. However the agency found no evidence of neglect.
Kopp says the residents with 22 snakes have until next week to get rid of them or else they'll be issued citations. According to the police report, the boa constrictors are only let out inside of the house and do not go outside. The police officer at the home reported the reptiles seemed to be well cared for.
The residents are trying to sell the baby boas.
