No snakes allowed in county courthouse in Seattle



SEATTLE (AP) — A visitor to the King County Courthouse tried to enter with a snake in his backpack.

It showed up June 10 in an X-ray at a security checkpoint.

The sheriff’s office says an officer asked the man if he had a pet in his backpack. He said he did and was told, “Sorry, no pets in the courthouse.”

The man left in a huff.
