Skittles the snake found dead
Skittles, the three-year-old Brazilian Rainbow Boa which had gone missing in Msida, was found dead near the Junior College today.
The five-foot boa constrictor had gone missing from Stephan Mintoff’s apartment in Triq Ta’ Xmiexi some two weeks ago.
After he printed flyers and posted a Facebook comment asking for help from the public, some people had called him to say that the snake was alive near the Junior College but he did not find it, he told timesofmalta.com .
Today, he received calls telling him that the non-venomous snake was dead.
An emotional Mr Mintoff said he went to check and found that his pet had been run over.
