[Ed. – Gee, they really can’t take a joke in Sioux Falls.]
A Sioux Falls, South Dakota man says he’s now fighting the city after receiving nearly $200 in fines this weekend for his pet snakes.
Jerry Kimball calls his pets “misunderstood” and often takes a few of his nine snakes out in public to interact with curious bystanders. …
This past weekend, he brought a few to Falls Park, drawing quite a large crowd.
The slithery creatures also caught the attention of a Sioux Falls animal control officer.
“He was like technically you have to have your snakes on a leash. And I was like, ‘Sir they don’t make such an item,” Kimball said.
