Snakes! Why does it always have to be snakes?

>the owner of the snake should not call them or expect to be reunited with the reptile.

IOW, the snake sleeps with the fishes. Either that, or TSA is keeping the snake as a mascot.

Ring-necked Snakes are native to the area, including New York City. The TSA is assuming that a traveler forgot the snake, rather than that the snake forgot its boarding pass.

Maybe the passenger didn't forget the snake, he was just leaving a little gift for his favorite Federal agency.

Poor li'l snakey's gonna be all traumatized now. I see major abandonment issues in its future.

That was my emotional support snake.

It simply was mistaken as a TSA employee.

A TSA Snake Sing-Along Blog (with apologies)

Boys and girls take warning
When you go near a plane
Keep your eyes wide open
Or the TSA sneaky snake will drink all your beer

He doesn't have any arms or legs
You can't see his ears
But when you're not looking
Sneaky TSA snake will steal all your beer

We don't like the TSA sneaky snakes
They slither, hiss and hide both far and near
No matter how hard we try
The TSA sneaky snakes will drink all our beer
