The streets of South L.A. had a different kind of thug rolling--or slithering--around today: A 5-foot-long snake. The snake, though perhaps to have been a boa constrictor, was found by a woman "in the strip of grass between the sidewalk and West 46th Street, between Denker and Halldale avenues," according to cbs2. The woman called the fire department who were able to get "the snake into a five-gallon bucket" to "be turned over to L.A. Animal Services."
