    $500 Reward for info on snake abuse...PLEASE HELP!!!

    Python recovering after being nailed to pole

    A 2-foot-long ball python that was found nailed to a telephone pole in Lawrence earlier this week was recovering yesterday at the MSPCA's Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston.

    The snake was found Wednesday afternoon by a Lawrence animal control officer near the corner of Buswell and Lexington streets with five roofing nails through its body. The nails - behind the jaw, through the tail, and along the rest of its body - missed all the major organs, said Brian Adams, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

    The MSPCA's law enforcement department is investigating what happened to the snake, which has been named Trent by the group's officials. The MSPCA is offering a $500 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible. The organization urged anyone with information to call 617-522-6008.

    Adams said officials believe that the snake may have been nailed up as a warning to somebody. "We have to find out who's trying to warn who," he said. He said the incident could also be "someone pulling a sick prank."

    MSPCA officials suspect the snake was affixed to the pole Tuesday night. Children saw it on the way to school, Adams said, then told authorities in the afternoon.

    "If he had been left there any longer, most likely he would have just died," Adams said.

    The snake was being treated with painkillers and antibiotics after being impaled by the 2-inch-long nails, but appeared likely to survive, Adams said.

    It would be funny if it weren't true.

    He's on painkillers and anti-biotics. I heard he has a private room at the hospital too.
