Children staying in same Brantford motel room where 40 pythons were seized
Police say there were children in the same Ontario motel room where 40 pythons were seized this week.
But experts say the snakes were a different variety than the one that killed two children in New Brunswick earlier this month.
A guest in a neighbouring room at the Brantford motel says the couple that owned the snakes had five young children with them.
Police said the reptiles -- ranging in length from 30 centimetres to 1.4 metres -- were found in plastic storage bins in the motel room on Thursday night.
They didn't specify the ages or the number of children in the room, but said no charges had been laid.
The motel manager say the couple stayed in the room for just one night.
The S-P-C-A says the snakes are male and female ball-pythons, a docile snake compared to the rock python that killed two New Brunswick boys.
