WATCH: Police Catch Snakes By Children's Park
Tuesday 22nd July 2014
Police were called to capture two seven-foot snakes from a park in East London, close to a children's playground.
Officers were filmed trying to catch the boa constrictors from some bushes after they were spotted by locals in Plashet Park, East Ham, which has a large children's play area.
The reptiles are not poisonous, although they are dangerous, as they kill their prey by coiling around it and squeezing.
The snakes were taken to a pet shop following the brave rescue operation by PC Simon Furia, who used a stick to lift the reptile into a paper bag.
