NORTH PORT, FL - Two boys are being praised for doing the right thing when they came across a loaded assault rifle in the woods.

The 9, and 7 year olds immediately went and alerted one of their parents, who called police.

Along with the AR-15 rifle, police say the boys also found a laptop computer in a wooded area along Jinright Rd.

A situation that may have ended in tragedy, instead has a happy ending thanks to the good thinking of the two boys.

ABC 7 Reporter Josh Taylor is on the story.

Should you be allowed to own exotic, potentially dangerous animals?

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) removed seven reptiles from an unlicensed man last week. FWC investigators charged Nick Mitchell with unlawful possession of seven venomous reptiles and several other violations related to the care, keeping and labeling of his animals. The animals, including a gila monster, black monocled cobra, rhino viper, dusky pygmy rattlesnake, black neck spitting cobra and two banded cobras, were seized and placed at a local licensed facility.
