Python Found

Residents of Skidmore Missouri are buzzing about the death of a resident there who happened to be a 7 foot 4 inch Python Snake.

A picture on Facebook shows the snake stretched out on a sidewalk in town. It's said the snake was sliding along the top of a privacy fence when a homeowner noticed it and then killed it. No one in Skidmore seems to know or at least is saying where the python came from or who might have had it as a pet. However talk in town is there might be more on the loose. There's no official confirmation from conservation officials or county law enforcers there are any more snakes of that size in the small northwest Missouri town.
