5-Foot Boa Constrictor Found in Hotel Bed

Generally, though, it's limited to messy guests and small critters.

A "terrified" pet owner was relieved to discover that an animal shelter had recovered his 5-foot-long boa constrictor after the man left it in a North Carolina hotel room, where police say a startled housekeeper found it in a bed. They immediately called animal control who transferred them to 911.

"I set him down for two minutes and forgot about him, walked out", Miller said.

The snake is temporarily calling the Buncombe County Animal Shelter its home until its owner can be found.

Turns out, the red tail boa constrictor was reportedly left in the hotel room by accident.

Miller arrived at the shelter to recover his "son" later Monday.

"We never know what calls for service we will receive", Asheville, North Carolina, police said in a Facebook post on Monday afternoon. Miller said he commonly carries the snake on his shoulders.
