FORT FRANCES – It is one of the more unusual calls for the Fort Frances OPP. It is not everyday officers get to contend with a real snake, in this case, a seven-foot-long boa-constrictor.

Rainy River District Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is requesting assistance from the public to locate the owner of a snake found in Fort Frances.

On August 8, 2020, at 3:15 pm members of the Fort Frances Detachment attended a residence in the west end of Fort Frances to recover a large snake that had been found by a homeowner. OPP officers collected the live snake and are now looking for the owner.

If you are the owner of the snake or have any information regarding the incident, the OPP asks that you contact the Rainy River District Detachment at 807-274-3322 or 1-888-310-1122,
