Beau the boa is back in her tank
9:30am Tuesday 11th September 2012 in News
BEAU the escaped boa constrictor was last night safely back in her tank.
The 8.5ft snake went missing in Sandford-on-Thames last week but was found safe and well in her next door neighbour’s garden.
The four-year-old creature went missing last Tuesday from owner Rob Davies’ ground floor flat in Church Road.
She was found on Friday in the neighbouring garden, wrapped tightly around a bush.
The neighbour contacted the RSPCA and police and officers were able to remove Beau and place her back in her vivarium.
Mr Davies, 26, yesterday said: “I am ecstatic she is back and she is fit and healthy.
“It is a lesson learnt and we have got another tank on order with a more secure lock.”
