'Oh, There's My Boa'

Transit officials say a 3-foot boa constrictor that slithered away from its owner on a Boston subway car a month ago has been found in an adjoining car.
A commuter spotted Penelope the snake and alerted a train attendant. Transit authority officials took the train out of service to search it. Subway staffer Sharon Lynch, a snake owner herself, caught it.
Penelope's owner, 30-year-old Melissa Moorhouse, traveled around with the snake around her neck and lost it between two stations Jan. 6. She says she'll pay more attention the next time she takes Penelope out in public(!)

Pardon me, I'm going to hide in the bathroom for the next 3 months...
