Big Snake Down in Georgia

What was called a 7-foot "boa constrictor" was seen roaming a Georgia neighborhood. DNR refused to remove it because it wasn't endangered or threatened. (News source.)

Sort of begs the question: isn't the release of an exotic species a wildlife crime in Georgia? Maybe not. But then again, what's the likelihood that the original identification of the snake as a boa was correct? Might just have been a large ratsnake or coachwhip.
