Python Found In Texas Woman’s Bathroom
A 12-foot-long African python sparked brief hisss-teria in a Texas home last week after a woman found it slithering inside her bathroom.
Veronica Rodriguez, 50, said she found the rogue reptile while talking on the phone with her daughter, Kelsie Fowler, about a strange noise she was hearing inside their College Station house, located about 100 miles northwest of Houston.
“As soon as I turned on the light, that’s when I saw it,” she told The Eagle.
“It was crawling into my tub … It really spooked me so bad.”
The panicked woman slammed the door and sprinted out of the house before dialing 911.
A short time later, Officer Tony Gonzales with the College Station Police Department arrived at the home carrying brown sack.
“I told him, ‘You’re going to need a bigger sack than that,’” Rodriguez told the newspaper.
And when Gonzales opened the door, he realized he would have to call for backup to help him grab the snake, which likely slipped into the house through an open door earlier in the day.
“I didn’t know what I was going to do with a snake that large,” the cop told the paper.
12 feet?! Kanye would probably make a crazy pair of python jogging pants out of that thing.
