HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) - A six-foot boa constrictor that crashed a funeral a few months ago has been nursed back to health and is ready to be adopted.
Forgotten Friend Reptile Sanctuary tells The Patriot-News of Harrisburg that the snake, Cocoa, is now healthy enough for a new home.
Animal welfare workers took Cocoa into custody in May after people attending a memorial service at Hershey Cemetery spotted her. Police believe Cocoa's owner dumped the snake after being unable to care for her.
The Patriot-News report on Thursday says police never discovered who abandoned Cocoa.
Cocoa is available for adoption on the sanctuary's site.
