Missing snake found inside Salem home

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

A 10-foot boa constrictor that went missing in June was found inside the Salem home of its owner, the Marion County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday.

The owners said Nomad, a 23-year-old red tail boa constrictor, found a hole in the wall of the home and crawled inside. They have since bought a new cage to prevent Nomad from escaping in the future.

The owners originally called authorities on June 26 after they hadn't seen the snake for several days.
