BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Police in Bismarck are searching a home where an 8-foot boa constrictor went missing sometime overnight.

Authorities say they believe the snake is likely still inside the home. Officers have already informed neighbors about the missing snake.

The home’s residents say the boa was in its enclosure before they went to bed Tuesday night. They contacted animal control after they searched the house and couldn’t find the snake.

Police say there are many hiding areas inside the house where the snake could be. They say the boa also may have gotten into the duct work.

Boa constrictors are not venomous and they usually hunt small rodents. Generally, they are not dangerous to humans.

Authorities are asking anyone who sees the snake to contact the Bismarck Police Department.
