Bay Shore - (WALK) Animal rights advocates are offering a $1,000 reward for the low character who abandoned a Ball Python in Bay Shore.
The 2.5 foot Ball Python was found in a glass container with a sliding screen top, abandoned in a residential neighborhood near the intersection of Longshore and Reilly Streets Wednesday afternoon.
Authorities say the python (a constrictor, similar to photo) was in good health, but approximately 1" of water had accumulated in the bottom.
The Suffolk County chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SCSPCA) says a $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for abandoning the snake.
