Washington, Jan 22 : Actor Nicolas Cage has been forced to return two pet snakes after his neighbours threatened him with a lawsuit.
The neighbours were terrified of the two poisonous reptiles, and in order for Cage to avoid the lawsuit, he had to return them to the store from where he had purchased them.
The 44-year-old, 'Leaving Las Vegas' star, had kept the reptiles at his Hollywood home for three years, causing much displeasure among local residents.
However he soon saw the light of day, when he was threatened with the lawsuit.
"They threatened to sue unless I got rid of them. I could see their point," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
