News Release
Pythons Located in Lacamas Park (Photo) - 07/22/21

Camas, Wash. -- 


Camas Police and Animal Control responded to a call of large snakes in Lacamas Park. Upon arrival, they were able to locate eight medium sized Pythons near the parking area of LaCamas Park at Round Lake.  The snakes ranged in size from approximately 3 feet to over 6 feet in length.


An extensive search of the immediate area was conducted an no additional snakes were located.


These types of snakes are not native to the Pacific Northwest and are usually owned by individuals as pets. Authorities are assuming the snakes were dumped in the park by a previous owner.


Officers were able to safely contain the snakes. With the assistance of Clark County Animal Control the snakes were transported to an animal shelter for examination and potential re-homing.
