Snake found in Saltcoats house

The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) is looking for the owner of a two-foot-long corn snake found in a vent at a house in Lochranza Place in Saltcoats.

Officers from the SSPCA’s Animal Rescue and Re-homing Centre in Cardonald were called to Saltcoats last Wednesday (June 11), after the snake – which has been given the name ‘Slither’ – was spotted in the house vent.

Animal Rescue Officer Tricia Smith explained, “A workman discovered Slither coming out of the house through a vent and contained her until I got there.

“She's a young corn snake and we suspect she may have belonged to the previous tenant who moved out few months ago as the house is currently empty. Unfortunately, we have no means of contacting this person, so we're hoping they might recognise their pet and come forward.”

Tricia said, “It would be wonderful to return Slither to her owner if she has gone missing, but if no-one comes forward for her we'll find her a new home.”

Anyone who recognises Slither (pictured above) is asked to contact the SSPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
