When the snake first disappeared, Hyde warned his neighbors and said he thoroughly searched his Meadow Lake neighborhood, but there was no sign of his pet.
Residents were concerned about the missing snake because of its size and the fact that it can eat small and even midsize animals.
Even though neighbors were nervous at the idea of such a big snake on the loose, Hyde said they never had anything to worry about.
"He's not vicious or evil. He's just shy and hungry," Hyde said, according to ADN.
Hyde said, while he wasn’t sure where the snake was for two weeks, Sam appeared to have roofing tar on parts of his body when he finally returned home.
