Wildlife officials have spent many hours there looking for the snake. A photo of the snake was taken by someone boating in the bayou next to the golf course and there have been numerous sightings of the snake since Memorial Day.
Wildlife officials believe the snake was once someone's pet and they either released it or it escaped.
