Forestry Department officials on Saturday removed a boa constrictor from the compound of the Soufriere Comprehensive Secondary school.

Acting Chief Forestry Officer, Alwin Dornelly, told St Lucia Times the officials removed the creature on Saturday morning after an alarm was raised.

He disclosed that it was an adult boa.

But Dornelly said the reptile would hardly have posed a threat whether or not there were individuals at school.

The Acting Chief Forestry Officer explained that the boa is not venomous.

In addition, he said that the reptile would normally avoid danger by not gravitating towards people.

Nevertheless, Dornelly noted that the snake would likely attack if cornered.

Earlier this week, a forestry department employee removed a boa constrictor from a yard in Jacmel.
