The animal was taken to Busia Police Station where it has been staying since. However, when Uganda Wildlife Federation officers came for the animal yesterday, it was nowhere to be seen.

Residents of Busia Town are now living in fear as the snake is known to be very dangerous. Given how big it was, which scared even the officers, you can understand the residents' fear of the animal.
