AKRON, Ohio — An Ohio pet rescue is searching for seven rare pythons that were stolen from the shop over the weekend.

Akron Rattery and Reptile Rescue CEO Robin Everley says the snakes were taken Saturday when thieves cut a hole in a wall in an adjacent building and broke in. She says the burglars set off the store’s alarm, snatched the snakes and dashed away in seconds.

The snakes are all about six months old or younger and can grow up to 30 feet long. She says the snakes are worth $6,000.

Everley says she’s worried about the health of the snakes. One snake is pregnant, another has a severe burn and the others are suffering from unspecified injuries.

The rescue serves as a pet store and a sanctuary for rare snakes.
