“An Iowa court fined a man $65 for allowing his pet snake, a bull python, to wander the halls of the Holiday Inn.

 
Michael Salo, 25, was fined Tuesday in a Mason City magistrate court under the city’s animal control ordinance for letting the 5-year-old snake slither around the hallways of the hotel without supervision while Salo was staying at the hotel May 1, The (Mason City) Globe Gazette reported Wednesday.”

The snake lover was fined for letting a bull python slither around the hallways of the hotel without supervision. The implication being that it would have been OK if Salo had been supervising the snake. How do you supervise a snake? Do you put him on a leash, and politely ask him not to harm any of the hotel guests?
 
How was this dude able to sneak a snake into the Holiday Inn? The Holiday Inn isn’t exactly the Ritz, but come on!
 
The python could have harmed a guest, or at least scared the Bejesus out of him. I’ll be surprised if a guest doesn’t sue the Holiday Inn.
