BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The SPCA Serving Erie County is asking for info from the community after five python snakes were found in and around a Delta Sonic Car Wash in Amherst over the course of a month.

SPCA officers were called on Friday morning to rescue a pastel clown ball python after it turned up in a PVC pipe at the Delta Sonic on Niagara Falls Boulevard near East Robinson Road. The snake was found not far from where another python was located on Aug. 15, the SPCA said in a Friday Facebook post.

Both of the reptiles are currently in the care of the SPCA.

In previous weeks, two pythons were found dead around the Delta Sonic while another is currently in private care.

Anyone with information on an owner or owners of the snakes is asked to call the SPCA’s investigative line at 716-875-7360, extension 214. The department accepts anonymous tips.
