Unusual client slithered into lawyer's office

The Scottish SPCA have launched an appeal to trace the owner of a small corn snake which slithered its way into a lawyer’s office in Dunbartonshire.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity was called in to rescue the snake after it was spotted inside the offices of Clyde Defence Lawyers in Alexander Street, Clydebank, on Thursday morning.

Now named Tango, the orange and yellow snake is being cared for at the charity’s Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Cardonald. Animal Rescue Officer Emma Campbell explained: “The person who first spotted Tango didn’t think he was real as he wasn’t moving.

“She thought someone in the office was playing a prank on her but after a colleague gave him a gentle prod it was clear he wasn’t a toy and that they needed to contact us for help. Tango is a placid wee guy and he isn’t very big as he’s still a juvenile.”

It's been at least a day now and no one's posted a lawyer/reptile joke?
