Man Ticketed And Told To Put His Snake On A Leash By Animal Control Officer (Video)
Posted by Maitlynn on April 11 2017

If you don't have your pet on a leash, prepare to get an "animal running at large" ticket, even if that animal doesn't even have legs.  That's what happened to snake owner Jerry Kimball when he took his ball python to a nearby park and allowed it to roam free during its bathroom break. According to Kimball, "They're not fast creatures,” so he was confused by the ticket he received and also the fact the officer told him he should put a leash on the snake. 

The animal control supervisor said, despite the fact that not all animals can actually run, that "running at large" is defined as “not under the control of the owner - by a leash.” The animal must be “chained, restrained, enclosed, or confined,” so there's no way it can leave the premises.  The officer also pointed out that Kimball should keep in mind others' aversions to snakes. Although they are legal to own, many people would be a little worried to see one roaming free in the park. 

Kimball hopes to fight his leash ticket in court, but we have a feeling there's little chance he'll actually succeed.
