BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - An 8-foot-long boa constrictor that was reported missing from a Bismarck home has been found.

The home’s residents reported the missing snake Wednesday, and police alerted neighbors.

Police say a private contractor recovered the snake from an air vent in the home Thursday evening. The snake was not hurt.

Boa constrictors are not venomous and they usually hunt small rodents. They’re not typically a danger to people.
