Snake’s Tale

by | 23rd, July 2004

‘WE’RE used to all kinds of sights on the beaches of the Mediterranean, some good, some bad and some plain scary.

So, when we hear that a 30-year-old Italian man caused a bit of a stir when he got his snake out on the beach, we hardly bat an eyelid.

Except this wasn’t his trousersnake, it was a pet python – and our hero managed to clear the whole of the Laigueglia beach near Savona when he got the reptile out of his bag.

Police were called, but apparently could neither arrest nor even fine the man because he had a licence to keep exotic animals.’
