This wasn't your usual Hamilton police apprehension.
Officers were called to John Street North and Strachan Street to investigate a report of a large snake that was slithering across the street yesterday afternoon.
Police found the snake and managed to confine it until Animal Control arrived.
The 5 to 6 foot snake is believed to be a Columbian Red-Tailed Boa Constrictor.
Police are still trying to find the snake's owner.
