Yikes!!! I am ridiculously, irrationally afraid of snakes and I sure wouldn't have been able to stop and help this one out. That being said, I am glad it is safe (and confined, lol) and I hope it finds it's way back home.

Remember the wayward snake on State Street Road on Saturday? Through diligent investigative journalism, we acquired a picture of it.
The snake, believed to be a ball python, is holed up at a secret, undisclosed location (well, at least, I don't know where it is) awaiting possible recovery by its rightful owner.
The python is described as a little over 3-feet long.
Give it to a zoo.
I must be color blind ! "a large black and green snake" . Don't quit your day job. Wait, it might be related to that Tattoo story No ?
It is far from being black and green. I would give it to the zoo if no one claims it.
My initial report came from scanner traffic and that's exactly how it was described by the caller to dispatch. Subsequently, Howard obtained a picture of it and it obviously looks gold and black. News often develops differently from how things are first made known.
I'm not color blind. This is my day job. It's Howard's day job, night job, weekend job and holiday job.
