DuPage County Forest Preserve Police Officer Krist Schroeder found the exotic snake three weeks ago. Schroeder says it's probably an abandoned pet.

Schroeder says the snake will soon begin a career as an educational aid.

The officer took the boa constrictor home and nursed it until an officer from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources took it to the Chicago Herpetological Society.

Schroeder says the docile animal will be used in classroom demonstrations.
