Slithery Intruder May Have Been Hungry
A corn snake decided to crash a Trumbull basement earlier this week.
According to Animal Control Officer Lynn Dellabianca, "The corn snake found its way into the basement and there was a dead mouse in a trap that the snake may have been attracted to. The snake was captured and released into the woods."
According to Wikipedia, a corn snake can reach four to six feet long. Rather than biting, it squeezes its prey, which are usually small animals. They prefer habitats "such as overgrown fields, forest openings, trees, palmetto flatwoods and abandoned or seldom-used buildings and farms, from sea level to as high as 6,000 feet," Wikipedia states.
They are popular as pets.

"The criminals removed all the wheels and tire and then dropped my car onto the driveway causing over $3,000 in damage," he wrote in an email.
No arrests have been made.
