MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A pet named Fluffy is loose near a golf course in Memphis.
Fluffy was playing in his owner's back yard on July eighth while she watered some plants when he got away, make that slithered away, from home.
Fluffy is a five-foot-long black and tan boa constrictor.
Dana Shields is offering a reward for Fluffy and says her neighbors in the Galloway Golf Course area have been really good about all this.
She offers this comfort, Fluffy won't squeeze anything too big to eat. Shields says a rat is about as big a meal as her snake would want.
Shields hopes if anyone finds Fluffy, they'll not harm him and will call her, once they stop screaming.
