— A pet boa constrictor that escaped from its Burlington home on Sunday is back with her owner and safe, according to a Facebook post.

"Abaddon has been found," posted owner Wolf Massey late Tuesday. "She is home, safe and well."

According to Massey, Abaddon, a female common boa, escaped her enclosure on Sunday after it was left unlocked mistakenly. When Massey searched her home for Abaddon without luck, she assumed her pet escaped.

On Tuesday, Massey found the snake near her deck.

"She is my pet, and I love and care about her just as much as one may love and care about a dog or cat," Massey wrote on Facebook before finding Abaddon. "Please do not harm her."
