Boa constrictor stuck in fence in Hull freed by RSPCA
A 5ft-long (1.5m) snake had to be rescued after getting stuck in a fence.
The boa constrictor had tried to slither through the wooden slats near a house on 12th Avenue, Hull when it got "wedged" on Wednesday.
It was spotted by a member of the public who contacted the RSPCA and animal collection officer Martin Whiteley managed to free it uninjured.
The charity took the snake to a local specialist and hopes its owner will come forward to claim it.
"The boa constrictor was a large snake at around 5ft long and he was quite wide," Mr Whiteley said.
"He'd tried to slither through the fence and got wedged.
"Luckily, I was able to carefully wiggle him free and he wasn't injured at all."
