Shelton (AP) — Animal rights groups are offering $3,000 in rewards for help in finding the person or people responsible for the death of a Shelton library's pet snake.
Peaches the corn snake died last month after someone dumped a cleaning solvent in her glass enclosure at the Huntington Branch Library. The snake suffered chemical burns and kidney damage.
The Connecticut Post reports that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible. Friends of Animals is offering a $500 reward for the same information.
Shelton police say they're still investigating the incident.
Peaches had been the library's pet snake for about eight years.
