She thought her SUV had been running a little weird, so this Wisconsin woman did what any of us would do… stop and check it out. And boy, did she get a surprise when she opened the hood of her car. There was giant ball python just hanging around.
After calling the Ormo Police Department in her town, they eventually discovered who did, in fact, own the python. But that was only after officers failed to coax the snake out of the motor and had to call a local snake expert to come get the serpent.
Local authorities fined the snake owner $313. He was allowed to keep the reptile but cannot bring it back to the city. NBC26, which reported it is illegal to own a ball python, has more on the story.
