Translated from Dutch news agency ANP today:
The General Inspectorate (AID) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality on Friday has seized seven rare snakes in Almere. The AID has said so today. The snakes were seized from a private owner in Almere.
The man did not have the proper papers to be allowed to have the snakes. He had three Madagascar ground boas and four Dumeril’s boas. These boa species are internationally protected.
The snakes were taken to a shelter. The ex-owner will be accused of violation of the Flora and Fauna Law.
