Penticton no place for snakes

Why is there a guy with the snake at the farmers' market?

Recently a fellow was walking through the Saturday morning farmer’s market with a large, about a 10-foot length and  3 to 4” diameter, snake draped up one arm, around his neck and down the other arm.

Fortunately I saw it from a distance.

One might easily have a heart attack seeing this thing suddenly up close in the crowded venue.

A python has recently killed two children in Moncton.  A recurring tragedy.

What is the city policy on snakes?

I recommend they be banned from the city entirely.
