Brantford - The Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals did not release the name of the Canadian couple charged with cruelty to animals in late August after 40 pythons were found in a hotel.
The names were not released of the couple charged with animal cruelty after 40 ball python snakes and five eggs were discovered in a hotel room in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, in late August, according ABC News.
According to news reports Canadians may have a greater fear because earlier the same month, as reported in Digital Journal, a python escaped a New Brunswick pet store and strangled two boys to death. One boy was five, the other seven.
The boys were reportedly at a sleepover in an apartment above a pet store. At the time, RCMP Constable Julie Rogers-Marsh did not know how the snake got free and would not comment on whether charges would be filed.
According to the Huffington Post, the snakes which were found in late August were three feet (a meter) long. They were found in plastic storage bins in the hotel.
An article in Yahoo1 reported the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals did not release the names of the couple charged with the cruelty. It was reported that the snakes did not have ample space and were dehydrated. A man and woman were charged.
