Snake found outside Chorley house
11:14am Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
A family has taken in a small American snake which they found on the road outside their house.
Nine-year-old Tiana Kirby found the pink corn snake on Bolton Road, Chorley, on Tuesday evening, and experts said it was likely to be an escaped pet.
Mum Tracy Sweeney, 37, has appealed for the snake’s owner to contact her, adding: “We don’t know what to do with it. Tiana loves it and wants to keep it but I’m not too keen on it staying in the house.
“We’ve got to feed it crickets or dead mice, so I’ll be getting my partner to do that!”
Danial Winchester, a Surrey-based amphibians expert, identified the snake from photographs and said it is ‘totally harmless’. He directed the family to a reptile rescue charity in Bolton.
If you are the owner contact Tracy on 01257 367912.
