A musician brought a non-venumous snake to Fernfest on the weekend and now the slippery fellow is missing.

The corn snake, cleverly-named ‘Snake’, went missing from its owner’s guitar case near the intersection of Fernwood Road and Gladstone Avenue on Saturday during Fernfest, an annual family-oriented community celebration.

The snake is described as a five-and-a-half foot long, one-and-a-half pound coral-coloured snake and “a bit chubby.”

Corn snakes are not venomous, but do pack a powerful and painful bite. If you see the snake, do you try to capture it, but called the VicPD non-emergency line at 250-995-7654 or animal control at 250-414-0233.
