SANTA FE, N.M. — A woman was terrified when she found out what caused her car to break down.
A 7-foot Burmese Python is something you’d usually find in the jungle, not the streets of New Mexico.
She was driving, when her car suddenly stopped. Imagine her surprise when she popped open the hood of her truck.
She called police and when the officer arrived, he took the snake off the engine and babysat it until animal control got there.
Officials said the python was young and probably only halfway grown. It was most likely in the truck to get warm.
Police believe the snake is someone’s pet. Reptile experts said the python isn’t dangerous, but there’s always the risk of an attack if the snake feels threatened.
