The body of a deadly snake has been found in a popular beauty spot.
The 6ft boa constrictor was discovered by a man riding his bike at The Coppice woodland in Poynton at the weekend.
The Manchester Evening News reports that it has now been recovered by a reptile enthusiast Lloyd Cooper and a wildlife officer from Cheshire Police.
Lloyd, 34, from Macclesfield, has warned against releasing exotic pets into the wild.
It is terribly irresponsible from whoever dumped the snake and desperately sad for the snake who I suspect has died from the cold.
Snakes are very sensitive to temperature and would not be able to survive. It would have been dead within days of being left.
However, if this had happened in the few months time it could have been a different story.
A boa of this size is quite capable of biting a human if provoked and is certainly capable of killing a dog or cat.
