Owner of missing snake spotted in Derrynoose offering reward for its safe return

The owner of a snake which went missing in Co Armagh this week has offered up a €50 reward for its safe return.

John Leonard’s pet Milk Snake went missing in the Derrynoose area on Wednesday.

It was caught on camera close to the junction with the Fergot and Clontibret Roads.

Mr Leonard has a number of pet snakes – all harmless – however, he said the missing Milk Snake was the only one he didn’t get as a baby.

He told Armagh I that the snake “figured out how to open the specially made unit door I had made to keep him in”.

“I would like to get him back an he is really shy so if anyone can catch him I can arrange the reward an get him picked up,” he added.

Mr Leonard has asked people in the Derrynoose area to keep an eye out for the red, white and black reptile.

If you have any information, please contact Armagh I directly and we will pass on the details provided.

Keady has gone wild altogether. Snake seen at junction of Fergort road Derrynoose and Clontibret road Junction.
