Medusa the snake lost in Hamilton

A Hamilton woman is asking for help finding her missing pet.

Ashleigh Denman is putting out a call to residents in the Red Hill Valley Parkway area near Melvin Avenue,  to be on the lookout for Medusa, a six foot long boa constrictor.

Denman says Medusa was sunbathing in her backyard when she slithered away.

On the Facebook page, Lost and Found Pets in Hamilton, Ontario, she asks locals,  "if seen please contact immediately for pick up."

Denman insists Medusa is calm and docile.
