Drivers on a Birmingham street got the surprise of their lives after two snakes were tossed out of a moving car window.

The pair of young royal pythons were in a flimsy container when they were thrown out of the vehicle. But the lid flew off when the box made contact with the hard surface, spilling the slithery reptiles out on to the road and in danger of being run over by the passing traffic.

A woman driving behind the culprits saw the whole incident occur on Newport Road, in Castle Bromwich, and stopped to investigate. And she then told how she “thought her eyes were deceiving her” when she clapped eyes on the snakes, reports Birmingham Live.

Fearing for their safety, but feeling uncomfortable around the reptiles, she got in touch with a friend who was quite happy handling them and they put them safely in a box. The woman then took them to a local vet and the RSPCA was contacted for help.

The charity is now appealing for information to find those responsible for abandoning them in a “cruel and totally unacceptable” manner. The incident took place on Sunday 25 September, near the roundabout leading to Bradford Road and Coleshill Road.

RSPCA inspector Fiona Howells said: “These poor snakes – later confirmed as royal pythons – had been callously tossed out of the window of a moving car. The driver who had been in the vehicle behind saw the whole event unfold, and luckily for the poor snakes, was able to make arrangements for them to be contained and taken to a local vet.

“Surprisingly, given their ordeal, the two snakes were in reasonable condition and looked healthy. Each was about three feet long, and we estimate they’re quite young – maybe six months old.

“They have now been taken to a specialist boarding facility where they will eventually be made available for adoption. I was really shocked by this incident and the callous and dangerous way in which these two snakes were just discarded out of the car window was really cruel and totally unacceptable.

“No matter what the reason, abandoning an animal is never okay. There is no guarantee that an abandoned animal will be found or not become hurt or lost.”

Anyone who has information regarding the snakes was asked to call the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
