The ministry noted that the low air temperature could negatively affect the health of the snakes, they behaved anxiously, “which most likely forced the man to put them on the roof of someone else's car.”
“The citizen had signs of alcoholic intoxication, refused to give his name to the patrolman and behaved very aggressively. He also did not say where he got the snakes, because the patrol man was detained and taken to the regional department,” the police said.
The snakes were handed over to an animal rights organization to examine them and help them find a temporary, well-equipped shelter.
Now the reptiles are in a safe place and feel good. On the offender, the inspectors drew up protocols under articles on cruelty to animals and drunken appearance in public places of the Code of Administrative Offenses.
