Just a couple weeks ago, there was an ordeal in Lexington involving a boa constrictor, when police thought there was one on the loose in the center of town.

The whole thing turned out to be a misunderstanding, though — the owner had the snake the whole time, and a photo of it on the ground was sent among kids in town, which led to a parent mistakenly reporting it as being on the loose.
