Snake owner, Jerry Kimball, was shocked when he received a $190 fine from an Animal Control Officer. The fine? "Animals Running at Large" on the day he let his four-month old python take a bathroom break in the grass at a local park.
While the ticket wasn't concerning, Kimball was upset by the AC officer's suggestion that his snake 'wear a leash.'
The City Ordinance applies to all pets in public, which means small or big, warm or cold blooded, with several legs... or no legs.
