[yllennod-nrubhsaw eirrac] - This is not a wild animal it was someone's pet that got loose or the let go----too bad we don't chip pythons.The owners should be held responsible for every animal it ate!
[greb amron] - should be illegal to own snakes they get too big and people let them go nasty things I would be so mad if someone let one go and it got my pet
[yawollag m eiluj] - beautiful! yes it was probably a pet that the owner couldnt handle anymore! Yes it was awful that other pets went missing but he has to eat! The owners probably couldnt afford to feed him enough and he got out to find his own meals! ANY animal would do that! NOT all people should have exotic pets!
[rrac ekim] - The only good snake is a dead snake.
[smailliw ssor yhtorod] - I hope they DON'T destroy it.. It is beautiful
[wod cire] - Hahaha... "FRIGHTENING DISCOVERY"...gotta love the media! It's only an escaped pet albino Burmese python "previously" owned by an IDIOT owner who has no business keeping any sort of snakes.
[llah nomrah ennaxor] - Many people who purchase reptiles are irresponsible, not be realistic in how they grow and what it takes to care for them. These same people don't develop a deep connection the reptile (as reps don't know how to give & receive affection) so they feel no guilt when turning them out. These animals should have some kind of tattoo number on them identifying who the owner is and fine them big time.
[fehs ydna] - Hey honey go to the shed and grab my work gloves please. lol
[ettenaej snilloc] - Lucky their toddlers weren't discovered missing! Creepy
[eloot eniar] - Python, an animal like any other...they have to eat too. Not the snakes fault...look to the owner who let it go or who let it get away for fault.
[sehguh hteb yram] - This size python can swallow children (and have done so before). They have no place as pets.
[zednanref anauj] - For a second I read "Residents and pets were disappearing..." Lol
[ahcor enaj] - hope they dont hurt it....its only trying to survive...i know its also scarry to find
[ttomredcm haras] - that's is a BEAUTIFUL snake. I hope it's gets properly cared for
[ellavo akire] - I would shank this snake if it ate my dog
[zednanreh ycats] - People, people, please don't say these animals are not dangerous. Yes, it is RARE, but as we just recently heard, a LARGE snake just killed 2 boys (5 and 7 I think) while in their sleep in Canada. Be CAREFUL, these type of creatures are animals and live by instinct and hunger, not morals and loyalty!!!!
[oerrak eecnan] - Im a snake owner and theyre beautiful. What I dont understand is how does the owner not realize a 13ft 100 pd pet snake is missing?????? Smh
[yelah lorac] - Needs to go to zoo! Dont kill!
[smailliw idnyc] - Sure, living in Colorado we have deer, elk, skunks, racoons, and even bears... I have no problem with those, but a python???? That's just flipping scary!
[tsoverp ellimac] - yikes snakes totally freak me out...this one is especially UGLY
[trah nna einahpets] - I hope the poor thing wasn't killed. It's not the snakes fault some irresponsible owner let it loose
[onibru neelloc] - What the hell is the matter with people..... exotic animals belong in their habitat.....not in someone's shed......how stupid and sad.
[nnaccm ytak] - won't be going in my shed real soon!
[kcorb-nerhaw nor] - I will adopt it.. Poor Python...
[aicrag acinorev] - Glad she was caught. Glad I don't own a shed. Glad I didn't find her, or I'd die of a panic attack. For all those other weird comments about snakes... PS. They grow based on their habitat. She's been loose for quite some time based solely on her size. Had she been someone's pet, she wouldn't be so big. If neighborhood pets were disappearing, then she's been on the prowl for years to be 14ft long! Holy snake!
[reizalcloc aliehs] - So cool! Beautiful coloring. Please don't kill it. Its not his fault. The person who let it loose should be charged.
[agev siulesoj] - I would make some delicious snake soup with that one..
[saicam ycul] - I would not want to run into this!!
[nilood nylhsa] - This wasn't a wild animal, some ones pet got too large and they negligently released it!
[hpesoj eirelav] - Ohhhh hell NO. I would just die.
[serrot yhtak] - Snakes are creepy, not good as family pet.
[zerodazac nabetse] - We need a python in my neighborhood..way too many cats craping on my lawn. I am kidding CAT lovers and PETA !! Lol
[zerak zohw] - Is not the snake's fault, it's people's!
[trab adnil] - This is what my nightmares are made of.
[yenoh b ylloh] - I think snakes are beautiful but I could never keep a snake because I would feel to bad about having to feed it, considering what snakes eat.
[esuag-kcollub aliel] - Well I for one think he would make a good handbag or coin purse or a belt for all the neighbors pets he ate...fair is fair
[smailliw ardnas] - The owner probably let it go cause it got to big, that happens alot.. people get animals are cute and small, then they grow.....
[llab essej] - I'm surprised the cops didn't shoot it.
[sirrom enirehtac] - why is an albino python scary? it was someone's pet. actually i hope whoever it belongs to sees the news and goes to pick it up. there is NOTHING dangerous about a python unless you're smaller than a rabbit.
[gnuf ysiad] - can't help looking at its innocent face like it's trying to say, "I don't know where my owner is and I've been starving. Didn't mean to eat someone elses pet."
[neeuqcm enaid] - That would scare the heck out of me. That is one huge snake.
[revilo nirac] - I never thought I would say this, but he's actually kind of cute.
[kcalb trebor] - He'd make a nice pair of boots....
[silegnaed kcolg enna-yllek] - Does it belong to the Lizard Wizard's in Canyon Lake?
[recneps yar] - Yeah but I divorced her
[ak nairb] - yes. Under strict liability, whoever owned this pet should be responsible for people's losses.
[azodnem zil] - That's a huge and scary snake
[eetiyst nallaoj] - He had some good meals. Poor pets.
[subnet anit] - Hopefully they send it to a zoo or sanctuary. It isn't the snake's fault that it had an irresponsible owner.
[ocnarf alegna] - OMG!!! I would have nightmares for life!!!

[selaznog evets] - @Nancy that's a tired Brittney Spears wannabe look
[oerrak eecnan] - Id want to see what its like to have that covering my body in the nude for a photoshoot
[onasip-enoicnirric airam] - Hope they find the Idiot that let it loose and everyone with a missing animals gets a shot at him!
[eleets aicirtap] - Wow! That is creepy!
[smailliw enaid] - My new boots and handbag...
[unabm luap] - This is my absolute nightmare to find something like this in my house. MAJOR ARACHNOPHOBIA!!!!!
[sessur eibbed] - I doubt if the animal got out of the shed and ate another animal and THEN went back to the shed. I would be suspicious of the owner. Did he kidnap neighbor's pets?
This snake is too dangerous to NOT be in confinement. I'm not for destroying animals. But, in this case, many pets went missing and a small toddler could have just as easily been killed.
[sniggih yram n enyaw] - Someone lost a pet hehe...it didn't get that big in wild..
[oyorra lael ovatsug] - I want it!! It looks beautiful!! I LOVE SNAKES!!
[atnemra yrret] - Where is this at/
[ttomal nonnahs] - I love snakes
[nothguorb onaznam assir] - Nice color, nice color for purse :)
[zehcnas rianibor] - oh! living? as in pet?
[giarc egroeg] - Please let me know if they find lil Fifi inside the snake. She's been missing for 2 weeks :(
[seyer oznola siul] - It looks cool, i.have a few friends that stole bby alligators ffom A reserve , they were mean little guys
[wod cire] - @Catherine Charnell Steadman... It is tragic that those kids loss their life. However, I do not know the whole story and in any case, the keeper of the python is ultimately responsible. As for people keeping snakes as pets, it's no different than keeping fish, birds or any rodents as pets. If anything, a properly cared for, captive bred and born snake is more likely to have a better life than its wild counterpart since snakes are very simple creatures that are fairly content in conserving energy in a tight space where it can hide without being disturbed. Anyway, people will always have their opinions whether they have sufficient knowledge of what they're talking about or not. In the case of this subject, it's all about responsibility.
[nosreves ainigriv] - This creature should be in a zoo not in a neighbor's shed.
[ollimaraj enuj] - That female animal control officer is doing a great job. Most people would not touch that thing.
[saicam anna] - Oh yes and coyotes come through my yard frequently.
[saicam anna] - Yes a bobcat basking by our swing set! And one walking right under our den window.
[osnecsa leafar] - Snakes make great pets..people on the other hand make misinformed an misguided judgements..based on fear. They buy a snake when it's small not realizing some grow very large an then they let them go. Irresponsible snake owners..nothing more.
[ybrik eniale] - I hope they found the snake a good home.
[eson airogerg] - Why bring them to our Country, they don't belong here,.
[ogabar ystap] - Too bad he ate the little creatures in the neighborhood, but he is beautiful.
[nameloc ainos] - I am so scare of snakes
[zaid m eihcra] - the python ate my homework!.....after the dog
[lagutrop tob] - The albino did it!
[zerreitug aicrag ettevy] - My brother had one just like it. Had to have been someone's pet at one point. Albinos are not real common
[dlognief xila atsirhc] - That's not a wild animal...it's someone's pet!! We don't have those here in North America!! Der!
[odnanref naig] - Jess ball: I'm surprised the cops didnt shoot it.
-》because it didn't happen in LA.
[retsof ydnew] - Awww. Poor pets!!! Cool snake though!! I haven't had any run ins with anything like that!! Just a couple of rattlers & garters!!
[lleddir hteb] - I don't think that's a wild animal, more than likely an escaped or abandoned pet.
[ossaj atiragram] - They belong in the zoo or in the wild. Sorry but I do not like snakes at all.
[otilop-rekrap yelrebmik] - It's Florida...why is that so shocking?
[snave aehtorod] - Yes drivers on the 405
[zeuqruoj'b ocsic] - Beautiful she is rare too
[doowyeh aeldoowylloh] - Yuck! hate snakes! :(
[rrac etteluap] - Kill it, I need a new pair of shoes and a new handbag
[wod cire] - @Veronica Garcia... It is not at all unusual for snakes like the Burmese pythons or reticulated pythons to get to this size, as a pet, in captivity. And they can easily get to this size within the first 3 years of life if fed consistently.
[aromaz odaruj aivilo] - Probably someone's pet at one time!
[zemog aifos anil] - Exotic animal belong in the wild, idiots still think they have the right to imprison a wild and free creature
[nameerf yduj] - the best snake is a dead snake no one should put a snake over your family.
[eugaet irret] - OMG where did they find this?
[ynohtna mik] - awww poor we thing I hope it got out and wasnt just dumpt and that they find a good home for it
[oerrak eecnan] - This snake was a pet of a owner who i guess hasnt fed their snake in months if it was eating every animal in sight. A snake that size is fed every 3-4. In guess the owner didnt want it but what a selfish way to let it go. Thankfully the man who found it did the right thing and called police
[revilo-egiap arodarmys] - People get these things and then just let them go. Someone could get hurt
[nilkrem nivram] - Don't have any pet that you can't control!
[yenoh b ylloh] - Paul Mbanu arachnophobia is the fear of spiders not Snakes.
[selaznog evets] - No but I'd kill that if it were in my house
[oerrak eecnan] - Woooow gorgeous! !!!!!!

[snep rahs] - I saw this snake at Zuma Beach last month!!!
[eornom tj] - He looks like a cat lover haha
[nosirrom rubma] - Not a wild animal . Someone's pet that was released into public. I used to own one that looked like this. Color made by breeders. What happens with irresponsible pet owners . Love these snakes

[yenoham sseyd oj] - Couldn't the pet run off from a snake?
[lr ztluhcs] - now u know where that annoying 6 yr old is
[rebuh airdnaxela] - It's sad for the snakes because people buy them when they are small.... But they aren't manageable as house pets at that size... So people just let them loose. So irresponsible... Some creatures belong in the wild.
[ekrub nwad] - Pretty sick and said! Why in the world should there be reptiles like this is pet store and people should want them for pet...... Sick people. Stop being selfish and clueless and like at the big picture and consequences from your actions for everyone.
[nednettirc mij] - Grew up in a neighborhood where snakes, even a few of these were kept... and yes one had to keep pets inside yard or house... but not one rat, mouse or gopher was ever found... plus the the women seemed to enjoy handling the snakes more then the men...
[zenun ylle] - What city was this in?
[llahsram aramat] - Oh dear..(sigh)'
[ahcor enna] - Oh my,how scary.
[maharg yram] - Looks like Sunny the 10ft albino python my roommate in Colorado had until we had to surrender him to a vet as a pet bc the city we moved to had laws against them.
[arevalat evets] - Coyote at the Golf Course. He was busy building a giant slingshot
[labazidral ococyd yttap] - Some people like snakes and some some people don't... DEAL with it!!!!
[labazidral ococyd yttap] - Oh I'm sorry I didn't know this topic is about religion. Thought it was about a snake found in someone's yard.
[ybrik yllom] - Dam people are so careless and inresponsible. How dare you let go a snake like this in population this snake could have ate a kid and hurt someone. So sad for the pets that this snake ate ppl should be held accountable for their stupid actions.
[zehcnas aicitel] - Ugly and scary too!
[llenurb divad] - Nice looking snake!! I want him
[zeuqsav zil] - But what if it just escaped? :/
[elehcim anitsirk] - Those pythons are very mellow as long as you stay relaxed and calm. I once borrowed my neighbors and wore it to a party with a green velvet dress and it was awesome, no problems. It depends on the snake has been around prople it's whole life and used to bring handled. They don't bite, just constrict if they feel your stress. Great pets. Feel bad the owner let it get out.
[ydarb eiram] - indeed i had a black snake with a silver stripe down it's back crawl down my hand arm and foot
[eel ytsur llessur] - oh yeah.... ill take it just like my old one 10 years ago 14.5 ft

[drofnats .j annod] - Where was this at.
[notgnillub ynohtna] - Uh that would be a feral snake, not a wild one. Wild animals naturally occur in the habitat they are found and albinos of any species rarely make it into adulthood due to poor camouflage.

[orreif enidan] - Yes, a wolf at a local park
