POLL: Do you think snakes as pets should be legal in Massachusetts?
On Sunday, a python slithered away from its yard in Plymouth. It was caught on Tuesday after biting a neighbor.
A Plymouth man let his 11-foot python named "Al" out for some air on Sunday.
The snake slithered away and was not seen again until Tuesday when it was captured by environmental police after biting a neighbor.
In Massachusetts, it is legal to have a snake as a household pet though some towns (including Plymouth) have a local bylaw requiring snakes over four feet long be registered with the town.
Environmental police said there could be a $100 fine for not registering the reptile.
