Snake Still on the Loose in Rutland

Buddy the snake is still on the loose in Rutland and with warm weather in the wings now is the time to catch him.

The 5-foot snake went missing Monday, May 20th and, while he’s red and black, he appears to be dark orange in colour.

Owner, Dede Schmid,  doesn’t believe he wouldn't go far, as snakes are naturally territorial.

“they’re cold blooded so when its warm he will make an appearance to warm himself up but when it’s cold he’s going to burrow and try to stay warm in bushes, shrubs, in a hole, anywhere," said Schmid.

She believes Buddy might be near Taylor Rd., Terai Rd., or around the Costco area.
