Plumbers, HVAC company helping search for missing python in mall
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) – A 12-foot Burmese python had still not been located as of 11 a.m. Wednesday after escaping from its enclosure inside the Louisiana Mall.
The snake was housed inside the Blue Zoo, an interactive aquarium inside the mall.
The Blue Zoo remained closed on Wednesday.
The managers posted the following message on their Facebook page on Wednesday morning:
“Friends, as our day and night search for Cara continues, we want to give you a quick update. We have enlisted several snake experts to help with the search, in addition to an animal tracker who worked with us throughout the evening and night. The local fire and police searched with us for several hours yesterday. We purchased night vision cameras to see more difficult areas, in addition to several motion detector cameras. We have hired a company using infrared. In addition, local plumbing and HVAC companies continue to install cameras in all possible openings and small areas. We also have heat and food sources to lure him in and have a vet on standby. Also our animal care and guest relations teams have been amazing working day and night. We all love Cara and their dedication and passion for her return is evident. We’ve seen evidence of Cara moving around in our ceiling space, which has plenty of places for her to hide. We continue our search for Cara and remain intentionally closed today for her safety. We will keep you posted here.
