A man in the UK has been banned from supermarkets for bringing his 6ft pet snake with him.

Staff and customers alike were horrified when 45-year-old Chaz Watson walked in to his local Asda with a giant snake wrapped around his neck. "It was a sunny day and snakes like the heat, so I thought I'd bring him out with me," he said.

"Chaz claimed he made the trip to test the store's no dog policy "to the limit"."

i think its kinda cool, i would love to go out and see someone take a snake shopping....but the shop said no dogs, so its kinda logical to assume any other animal would not be ok either...maybe the rule should be changed to "no animals" cause if they say no dogs or snakes, whats to stop someone bringing a cat, or a hamster, or a tarantula?

People walk around with Bull Mastiffs, a bull Mastiff is many, many times more dangerous than a python, and far more like to attack you. Hell, people walk around with ferrets fairly often, they are viscious! will bite just about anything. I see no problem with a man bringing a snake shopping.

Is that a boa constrictor in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

I bet all the money I don't have that snake was not a danger to anyone other than the owner. It's not like it has legs and can chase people.

It's not like it has legs and can chase people. You're kidding right?

You're kidding right? LOL, had to chuckle at the quote you had there. I guess I wouldn't bring my pet to a WalMart, even if it was allowed, because it's kind of a hassle. Most GUYS just go to get in, get out anyways.

I used to have a friend in high school who would bring his baby snake(I believe it was a boa but I can't remember for sure) to school with him every day. He was training it to be used to crowds and human contact to make it as tame as possible. It was maybe a foot and a half long to two feet long and he would carry it around in his pocket or around his neck. Surprisingly, it took over two weeks before an anonymous complaint was made and he was told not to bring it anymore.
