At Large: A 7-Foot Boa in Swarthmore

Swarthmore police have warned you, Swarthmorians: A seven-foot boa is on the loose after it escaped its home on the 300 block of Park Avenue. As the Daily News points out, a couple of Canadian boys were recently strangled to death by a hundred-pound python, after it escaped from a pet store. My I suggest some snake repellent, Swarthmore? Only $9.99.

Apparently, this is what the “pet” looks like.
