More than 200 snakes seized in raid

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina. (WILX) - Authorities in Argentina removed over 200 snakes during an apartment raid before the snakes could be sold on the black market.

When authorities arrived at the apartment they found 219 snakes stuffed inside of plastic containers.

The Environment Ministry will keep the snakes until they have a permanent home.
