Pythons found at Lacamas Lake

The snakes were transported to an animal shelter for examination and potential re-homing

Members of the Camas Police Department and Animal Control responded to a call of large snakes in Lacamas Park. Upon arrival, they were able to locate eight medium-sized pythons near the parking area of Lacamas Park at Round Lake.  The snakes ranged in size from approximately three feet to over six feet in length.

These are ball pythons. They are very docile.
