One of the local fraternities lost a pet recently, and now the citizens of Hanover, New Hampshire, are quivering with playful fear and mocking the nearby troublemaking Ivy league school. But, in their defense, strange animals get loose on college campuses all the time. A three-foot ball python has been missing from the coed Tabard fraternity house on Webster Avenue since Thursday, and the snake hasn't turned up yet. Police warned the public that the slithering snake may have escaped out of a fraternity window and told them to be on the lookout on Saturday morning.
Don't worry, the snake is not poisonous and doesn't eat small children for lunch. Your cats and dogs should be safe, too. But if you live in the area, be aware that the three foot python slithering in the bushes isn't your imagination, and that you should call the police immediately.
But there's a chance the pet is still inside the frat house, hidden in a corner or crevice outside of view. "We’ve had people lose snakes and they live in their house for quite a while just hiding," veterinarian Christine Pinello explained to the Valley News. "They’ll eventually find a snake alive or dead." Besides, humans are much larger than a three foot snake. "The python is probably scared," Pinello said.
