BALZANO, Italy, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Animal authorities in Italy said they captured two boa constrictors a week apart on the same stretch of highway.

Authorities said a snake, which was reported to be more than 6 feet long, was picked up Sunday from a stretch of highway in Val d'Ega Trentino valley in the Alto Adige region, exactly one week after a similar animal was captured along the same stretch of road, ANSA reported Tuesday.

Investigators said they believe the snakes, which are being housed at a local animal shelter, may have escaped from the same owner.
