Snake salesman to open store, replacing garage
October 01, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SHIRLEY, N.Y. — A Long Island animal control officer found with more than 850 snakes in his garage is moving them to a storage facility until he can open his own store.

An attorney for Richard Parrinello tells Newsday his client is deciding among three properly zoned locations.

He says moving the reptiles is difficult because it’s the end of their breeding season, when female snakes care for their eggs.

The town of Brookhaven says Parrinello is cooperating but has four weeks to get the snakes out of his garage.

Authorities removed two 6-foot Burmese pythons from Parrinello’s garage earlier this month. Burmese pythons are illegal to own in New York State without a permit.

Most of Parrinello’s snakes are legal, but he’s been cited for not having proper permits.
