Reptile breeder Brian Gundy had just completed giving an animal presentation at the Dr Martin Luther King Junior Library in downtown San Jose. He placed a duffel bag containing four snakes and a lizard down in a no-parking Zone. When he returned he discovered that the duffle bag had been stolen.
The stolen animals were worth approximately $5,000 according to the reptile breeder. There were three ball pythons and a baby albino caramel Burmese python. There was also a blue tongue skink that was abandoned.
“As I was loading up my gear, I realized the bag that had my four pythons and blue skink lizard inside was gone and they were just there seconds ago,”
“It’s very upsetting for me because — even though there is quite a bit of money involved in this loss — my biggest concern is the safety of these animals,”Brian Gundy
Gundy is not interested in pressing charges he just wants to get the snakes back. He claims that he will take them back with no questions asked.
