There's some good and bad news for the Maroa Boa, and that's good news for Maroa Residents.

But the Boa in question is a little worse for wear, the snake got hit by a car yesterday.

Police say the missing nine-foot snake was run over by a car near the Maroa-Forsyth High School early Tuesday afternoon.

Macon County Animal Control took the snake to a vet in Decatur and although it has a definate "ouchie" on its body it is expected to survive.

The snake's owner had reported it missing August 31. It's unknown if the snake had escaped from its cage or if it had been stolen.
