BIDDEFORD, Maine (AP) - Police in a Maine city say a five-foot boa constrictor that appeared to be an escaped pet was found curled up on someone’s porch.

A person called police on Tuesday afternoon to report the snake, which is not native to Maine. The Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/2toyWBL ) reports an animal control officer captured the snake in a pillow case and took it to the Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk.

The animal was a red-tailed boa constrictor, which is a kind of snake that is often kept and bred in captivity. They can grow to be 6 to 10 feet long.

No one had claimed the snake as of Wednesday morning.
