Pet snake on the loose in Lee County neighborhood


FORT MYERS, Fla. — A large boa constrictor named Sheila is on the loose in a Lee County community. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said it recently escaped from a home on Caloosa Road in San Carlos Park.

People who live in the area are worried about about letting their pets outside.

“I have a small dog and a small cat, so it’s definitely something to worry about” resident Matt Tobler said.

Sheila has only eaten frozen food and most likely won’t attack unless she feels threatened.
