Imagine seeing a massive python. Now, imagine it again in your neighborhood store.
An 18 foot long python recently broke into a store in Queensland, Australia.
Police were initially called to the scene after workers found broken merchandise scattered on the floor, along with some bodily goo.
Cops didn’t locate the suspect. The investigating sergeant stated “We thought a person had fallen through the ceiling because the roof panel was cut in half. When they've hit the floor they've vomited and then staggered and fallen over. That's what we thought anyway.”
The next day, a crowd was gathered at the shop, prompting law enforcement authorities to show up again. That’s when the huge, 37 pound python was found. Cops believed it was hiding the previous day.
A snake handler was called to remove it. It is currently thought the python sneaked into the shop through the roof. As for the mess initially found on the floor, cops were wrong to assume it was vomit.
It turned out to be feces from the snake. The python was moved to a nearby wetlands property.
