COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS – On Tuesday night, Cottonwood Heights' city council discussed a resident's snake collection.

The neighbors of Thomas Cobb said his 29 boa constrictors are a danger to the community and they fear for the safety of their pets and children.

Cobb defended his pets, saying they are not a danger and he is not running a business.

“It's my passion, something I love to the ends of the earth, the only thing I love more is my family,” said Thomas Cobb.

The council decided Thomas can keep his snakes for now, as no decision was officially made.
