Snake is loose at IHS

School may be in, but Hamilton is out.

A teacher at Issaquah High School noticed the morning of Sept. 11 that the docile, nonvenomous 2 ½-foot ball python, a biology class pet, had escaped his aquarium.

Administrators searched the school for the snake and called animal control, but it has not been located yet.

Administrators think it’s likely that the snake is still in the biology classroom, according to an email from the school. Animal control believes Hamilton will return to his cage on his own when he gets hungry. In the meantime, classes are still in session.
