Bit of a scare for a man in Gatineau who was outside with his cat when the feline found the skin of a boa constrictor.
The discovery happened Tuesday, but it doesn't appear the snake was ever on the loose.
Gatineau Police Sergeant JP Lemay tells CTV Ottawa the skin was tossed in the trash by the snake's owner.
The owner of the boa has moved to Montreal, along with the reptile.
