Royal python found in living room

MidiLibre/Scoop, Aug 12

Alicia and her husband, a couple from Millas, Pyrénées-Orientales, found a python in their living room last week. About a metre long, and with a diameter bigger than a €2 coin, the snake was curled around a chair leg.

Alicia, alone at home with her 4-month-old son, was waiting for her husband to return from a fishing trip on Wednesday. “I put my baby to bed, and then I went to bed myself. When my husband returned he shouted for me to call the fire brigade. At first I thought it was a joke”, said Alicia.

When her husband returned, he almost stepped on the snake, but saw it just in time.

Firefighters rushed to the home in Millas to remove the snake.

The firefighters assured the couple that the snake was completely harmless, and decided to release the snake into the garden, with the knowledge that the python is very likely to return to its owner.

“It was two metres from my door that evening, so I haven’t been sleeping much since then”, said Alicia.
