A 5.5-meter python has caused panic in the Ford Chandler neighborhood, Hampshire, England, after escaping from its owner’s home and trying to enter another home on Tuesday morning (23/8).
The Burmese python was caught by a neighbor, who already knew the animal and returned it to its owner.
According to the Daily Echo news portal, police said they would not investigate the case as the incident was not a “police related matter”.
Jenny Warwick says she looked out her window at 5:15 a.m. local time and saw a big yellow thing on the roof of a house, but only realized it was a snake when she saw it was trying to get into the window.
“People passing by couldn’t believe what was happening,” Warwick says.
Linda Elmer, who has known the snake and its family, says that she was woken up at 7 a.m. by neighbors who were knocking on her door looking for the animal’s owner.
“Everyone was in a panic,” recalls Elmer, who also owned a snake and was a firefighter.
“I managed to catch the snake – no one wanted to help. It was really hard because it was such a big animal. I managed to block this 5.5m snake around me in the street and knock on the owner’s door.”
“It’s a beautiful animal, and Burmese pythons are also very docile. They are not aggressive snakes in any way. I’ve had one before, so I was comfortable catching it,” Elmer says, acknowledging that the situation was “shocking for everyone.” .
The non-profit organization The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), which is dedicated to the welfare of animals in the UK, had previously advised snake owners to keep their animals well in the summer period. to run away.
