NJ Hopes Lake Hopatcong Anaconda Isn’t This Big?

NJ Hopes Lake Hopatcong Anaconda Isn’t This Big?

So the search for the 14 to 20 feet long Lake Hopatcong reptile continues. Reports vary on whether the huge snake even exists.

Sightings of a snake, reported as an anaconda or a boa constrictor, have been taking place in the Lake Hopatcong vicinity for weeks. Now workers are trying to trap it.

Two workers placed long metal tubes on the Jefferson side of the lake a few days ago. According to New Jersey Herald, Department of Environmental Protection spokesman Larry Ragonese said the traps use dead chickens for bait, and have narrow openings that would contain a snake, but not kill it.

But the DEP reports that sightings of the snake have not yet been confirmed. "We don't have any confirmation of this snake at all," DEP spokesman Bob Considine said, according to a Reuters report on Yahoo News. “Local animal control has been asked to report any legitimate sightings of the snake - which so far have amounted to zero.”
