[carrie washburn-donnelly] - 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!
[norma berg] - 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
[julie m galloway] - 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!
[mike carr] - The only good snake is a dead snake.
[dorothy ross williams] - I hope they DON'T destroy it.. It is beautiful
[eric dow] - 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.
[roxanne harmon hall] - 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.
[andy shef] - Hey honey go to the shed and grab my work gloves please. lol
[collins jeanette] - Lucky their toddlers weren't discovered missing! Creepy
[raine toole] - 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.
[mary beth hughes] - This size python can swallow children (and have done so before). They have no place as pets.
[juana fernandez] - For a second I read "Residents and pets were disappearing..." Lol
[jane rocha] - hope they dont hurt it....its only trying to survive...i know its also scarry to find
[sarah mcdermott] - that's is a BEAUTIFUL snake. I hope it's gets properly cared for
[erika ovalle] - I would shank this snake if it ate my dog
[stacy hernandez] - 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!!!!
[nancee karreo] - 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
[carol haley] - Needs to go to zoo! Dont kill!
[cyndi williams] - 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!
[camille prevost] - yikes snakes totally freak me out...this one is especially UGLY
[stephanie ann hart] - I hope the poor thing wasn't killed. It's not the snakes fault some irresponsible owner let it loose
[colleen urbino] - What the hell is the matter with people..... exotic animals belong in their habitat.....not in someone's shed......how stupid and sad.
[katy mccann] - won't be going in my shed real soon!
[ron wahren-brock] - I will adopt it.. Poor Python...
[veronica garcia] - 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!
[sheila colclazier] - So cool! Beautiful coloring. Please don't kill it. Its not his fault. The person who let it loose should be charged.
[joseluis vega] - I would make some delicious snake soup with that one..
[lucy macias] - I would not want to run into this!!
[ashlyn doolin] - This wasn't a wild animal, some ones pet got too large and they negligently released it!
[valerie joseph] - Ohhhh hell NO. I would just die.
[kathy torres] - Snakes are creepy, not good as family pet.
[esteban cazadorez] - We need a python in my neighborhood..way too many cats craping on my lawn. I am kidding CAT lovers and PETA !! Lol
[whoz karez] - Is not the snake's fault, it's people's!
[linda bart] - This is what my nightmares are made of.
[holly b honey] - 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.
[leila bullock-gause] - 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
[sandra williams] - The owner probably let it go cause it got to big, that happens alot.. people get animals are cute and small, then they grow.....
[jesse ball] - I'm surprised the cops didn't shoot it.
[catherine morris] - 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.
[daisy fung] - 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."
[diane mcqueen] - That would scare the heck out of me. That is one huge snake.
[carin oliver] - I never thought I would say this, but he's actually kind of cute.
[robert black] - He'd make a nice pair of boots....
[kelly-anne glock deangelis] - Does it belong to the Lizard Wizard's in Canyon Lake?
[ray spencer] - Yeah but I divorced her
[brian ka] - yes. Under strict liability, whoever owned this pet should be responsible for people's losses.
[liz mendoza] - That's a huge and scary snake
[joallan tsyitee] - He had some good meals. Poor pets.
[tina tenbus] - Hopefully they send it to a zoo or sanctuary. It isn't the snake's fault that it had an irresponsible owner.
[angela franco] - OMG!!! I would have nightmares for life!!!

[steve gonzales] - @Nancy that's a tired Brittney Spears wannabe look
[nancee karreo] - Id want to see what its like to have that covering my body in the nude for a photoshoot
[maria cirrincione-pisano] - Hope they find the Idiot that let it loose and everyone with a missing animals gets a shot at him!
[patricia steele] - Wow! That is creepy!
[diane williams] - My new boots and handbag...
[paul mbanu] - This is my absolute nightmare to find something like this in my house. MAJOR ARACHNOPHOBIA!!!!!
[debbie russes] - 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.
[wayne n mary higgins] - Someone lost a pet hehe...it didn't get that big in wild..
[gustavo leal arroyo] - I want it!! It looks beautiful!! I LOVE SNAKES!!
[terry armenta] - Where is this at/
[shannon lamott] - I love snakes
[rissa manzano broughton] - Nice color, nice color for purse :)
[robinair sanchez] - oh! living? as in pet?
[george craig] - Please let me know if they find lil Fifi inside the snake. She's been missing for 2 weeks :(
[luis alonzo reyes] - It looks cool, i.have a few friends that stole bby alligators ffom A reserve , they were mean little guys
[eric dow] - @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.
[virginia severson] - This creature should be in a zoo not in a neighbor's shed.
[june jaramillo] - That female animal control officer is doing a great job. Most people would not touch that thing.
[anna macias] - Oh yes and coyotes come through my yard frequently.
[anna macias] - Yes a bobcat basking by our swing set! And one walking right under our den window.
[rafael ascenso] - 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.
[elaine kirby] - I hope they found the snake a good home.
[gregoria nose] - Why bring them to our Country, they don't belong here,.
[patsy rabago] - Too bad he ate the little creatures in the neighborhood, but he is beautiful.
[sonia coleman] - I am so scare of snakes
[archie m diaz] - the python ate my homework!.....after the dog
[bot portugal] - The albino did it!
[yvette garcia gutierrez] - My brother had one just like it. Had to have been someone's pet at one point. Albinos are not real common
[christa alix feingold] - That's not a wild animal...it's someone's pet!! We don't have those here in North America!! Der!
[gian fernando] - Jess ball: I'm surprised the cops didnt shoot it.
-》because it didn't happen in LA.
[wendy foster] - Awww. Poor pets!!! Cool snake though!! I haven't had any run ins with anything like that!! Just a couple of rattlers & garters!!
[beth riddell] - I don't think that's a wild animal, more than likely an escaped or abandoned pet.
[margarita jasso] - They belong in the zoo or in the wild. Sorry but I do not like snakes at all.
[kimberley parker-polito] - It's Florida...why is that so shocking?
[dorothea evans] - Yes drivers on the 405
[cisco b'jourquez] - Beautiful she is rare too
[hollywoodlea heywood] - Yuck! hate snakes! :(
[paulette carr] - Kill it, I need a new pair of shoes and a new handbag
[eric dow] - @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.
[olivia jurado zamora] - Probably someone's pet at one time!
[lina sofia gomez] - Exotic animal belong in the wild, idiots still think they have the right to imprison a wild and free creature
[judy freeman] - the best snake is a dead snake no one should put a snake over your family.
[terri teague] - OMG where did they find this?
[kim anthony] - awww poor we thing I hope it got out and wasnt just dumpt and that they find a good home for it
[nancee karreo] - 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
[symradora paige-oliver] - People get these things and then just let them go. Someone could get hurt
[marvin merklin] - Don't have any pet that you can't control!
[holly b honey] - Paul Mbanu arachnophobia is the fear of spiders not Snakes.
[steve gonzales] - No but I'd kill that if it were in my house
[nancee karreo] - Woooow gorgeous! !!!!!!

[schultz rl] - now u know where that annoying 6 yr old is
[alexandria huber] - 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.
[dawn burke] - 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.
[jim crittenden] - 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...
[elly nunez] - What city was this in?
[tamara marshall] - Oh dear..(sigh)'

[molly kirby] - 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.
[leticia sanchez] - Ugly and scary too!
[david brunell] - Nice looking snake!! I want him
[liz vasquez] - But what if it just escaped? :/
[kristina michele] - 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.
[marie brady] - indeed i had a black snake with a silver stripe down it's back crawl down my hand arm and foot
