South Dakota man gets $190 fine for snake without leash

A man who was fined for allowing his pet snake to slither freely in a South Dakota park said an animal control officer suggested he use a leash to restrain the reptile.

Jerry Kimball said he initially thought the recommendation was a joke because it was April Fool's Day when he was fined $190 and ticketed last week for "animals running at large," told the Argus Leader.

"He was literally asking me to put a rope around my snake," Kimball said. "I was like, 'Dude, no.' I was dumbfounded."

Kimball was approached by the officer after a woman complained that his Fire Bee Ball Python was roaming freely at Falls Park in Sioux Falls.

Animal Control Supervisor Julie DeJong said a city ordinance requires all pets to be leashed or restrained in public.

I understand that people might be upset by a python roaming free, but, a leash? Not even sure how you would accomplish that.

Put a leash on a rabbit. Sit it next to the python and wait a few minutes.

Then the leash will be in the rabbit instead of on it!
