More exotic animals in community than you might think

Sigh. From the article:
Quote:
Ball Pythons, for example, can get up to 6 feet in length. There have been many instances where people have been killed by them.

There is apparently not much knowledge about animals required to be an animal control officer. I don't suppose small newspapers have much in the way of fact-checkers, either.

I sent a friendly email to the author, Mr. Flowers, asking if he could cite any statistics regarding the ball python claim. I'll update if I receive a reply.
