So, they called the local expert, John Kelly from the Littleton Pet Center, whom confirmed that the snake was in fact dead. I think it was the blood on it's head and the fact that it didn't move that gave it away.
Well, here is where the story gets strange. Or stranger, depending on if you are a local yokel or not.
The crew and expert didn't dispose of the corpse.
Instead, they tossed it back on the ground and mentioned it on their scanner radios.
Looky-loos who heard the news, stopped by to see the unusual creature (albeit dead) and then it snowed for 2 days.
The corpse, is covered up with snow. In Littleton. Expect another article after the spring thaw about a boa constrictor infestation in the North Country.
