Missing Python Recovered

Jun 28, 2013

Athens County Sheriff's deputies say a small python has been found beneath the Athens mobile home where a resident said she released it on Sunday.

David Sagan, director of the Hocking Woods Nature Center at Hocking College says the 3-and-a-half-foot python hid under the home. Sagan says the python posed no danger to residents. It's not clear what will happen to the snake, which is currently at the nature center. The woman who released the python initially said she couldn't afford to feed it.
