Saturday was apparently "bring your pet snakes on MAX" day.
Crowded train, family of four boards downtown, each with a large snake draped around the neck/shoulders. Several passengers expressed fear, terror, and the family was told, "you can't bring those on the train." The mom, with the biggest snake replies, "oh, they're fine. This one's just a little stressed. If everyone just stays still, it'll he'll be fine."

At this exact moment, about a dozen more people crwoded onto the train, and were none too happy to be crammed up against large snakes.

2. NOT allowed
Pets must be caged, and only documented service pets may be allowed to ride not caged. That is the LAW now.

I got a girl banned from Tri-Met for having a snake on board a bus and being defiant about it.

3. Well where were you last Saturday?
I was sitting too far away to make a stink about it.

4. I wouldn't have stayed on that bus.
It creeps me out to even think about snakes having been on Tri-met.

What line was it, do you know? I'm about to head out and don't wanna get on that one!

5. It was on MAX Green Line.
They got on at NW 6th & Davis, then got off at the Rose Garden. This was also around the time when the Blazers game was getting out.

6. I'm sure the security cam captured an image
Surprised channel 2 didn't pick it up. I don't watch local news, though.

7. Yikers.
I'm scared for all of you who have to share the city with those circus animals. And I'm not talking about the snakes.
