Boa Constrictor Discovered Lounging On Top Of ATM

Is this boa constrictor discovered on top of an ATM in Serbia part of an attempt to control the scourge of mice nesting in ATMs, or just the latest international crime syndicate to take up ATM skimming?

The AP voiceover claims that the snake is a python, but that’s just what the boas want you to think. It’s actually a six-and-a-half foot boa constrictor.
