Spate of Snake Escapes in Stockport and Cheadle


Locals were put on snake alert following two separate escapes at the end of last year.
A 15ft reticulated python escaped from her enclosure before turning up in a neighbour’s garden.
Tinkerbell, owned by breeders Jade Sharmann and John Dean, slithered out of her home in Shaw Heath, Stockport, through a pipe on Monday night.
She was found “freezing” but otherwise unharmed by her adventure the next day.
On the same day, a 20ft python was reported missing from its home in Cheadle. A Police appeal and warning to local schools was put out via social media.
