London, Aug 18: In a bizarre turn of events police discovered 40 pythons inside a hotel room in Canada.
The reptiles were found in several plastic storage bins inside a room in Brantford, Ontario, where a couple who had been evicted from their home were staying, Sky News reported.
Officers have opened an investigation into the incident, but have not said whether the pair will be charged with breaking local laws that prohibit owning pythons.
The snakes, which ranged from 12 inches to five feet in length, were in poor health and have been taken in by the Canadian Society for the Protection of Animals. (ANI)
