An animal rights group has issued an appeal for information after three giant boa snakes were found near a lake near Glasgow.

The reptiles were discovered dead next to piles of rubbish at a fly dump site near Carbeth Loch in Blanefield, north of Glasgow.

Scotland’s SPCA inspector Mairi Wright said the snakes were found close together between rubbish bags.

The charity called the discovery “very concerning” as it is asking the public for help in its investigation.

Boa constrictors are a type of large, non-venomous snake. They are usually found in the wild in warmer climates in South America and the Caribbean.

Because of their long and heavy bodies, they can wrap themselves around their prey and crush them to death.

It is not uncommon for them to be kept as exotic pets but they do require large tanks as some can grow to 12 feet tall.

Scotland’s SPCA said it became aware of the incident after it was discovered.

SPCS Inspector Mairi Wright said: “They were lying close together, next to garbage bags at a fly dump site.

She added: “We are curious as to what happened to these snakes and how they got there.

“If anyone recognizes these reptiles please contact our confidential animal hotline on 03000 999 999.”
