OOP Boa in Michigan

A 6 foot 10 inch Boa constrictor (consistently misidentified as a Burmese python in various news accounts) was shot by a Michigan police officer after it had been run over by a man several times. It was "acting aggresively" towards passing motorists. (Probably because it was scared, and after being run over, in pain...) (News source.)
