YOMIURI SHIMBUN (Tokyo, Japan) 18 November 00 Snake case sent to prosecutors
Police on Friday said they had sent to the Tokyo Public Prosecutors Office documents concerning a 45-year-old company employee whose pet snake injured a housewife in Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo.
The two-meter-long boa constrictor, which is a species indigenous to Latin America, was about 20 centimeters in girth. The man kept it in a tank in his apartment on the fifth floor of a Shinagawa Ward condominium.
At about 10 a.m. on July 26, while the owner was out, the snake apparently escaped from the tank and slid onto the balcony of an apartment on the fourth floor of the building. The snake then proceeded to wind itself around the ankle of the 79-year-old housewife, who was on the balcony at the time. The resulting injury took two weeks to heal.

Note: UK version (Snake owner in trouble over neighbour's death) said the boa ‘killed’ the lady … and we wonder how rumors get started! http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_119655.html
