Python abandoned in Wash. rental houseOctober 9, 2013 @ 8:10 pm
COLFAX, Wash. (AP) - Experts at Washington State University's veterinary college are caring for a cold, hungry 11-foot python that a southeast Washington landlord found apparently abandoned in a rental house.
KREM-TV reports ( http://is.gd/wMtc5R) the Colfax landlord called Whitman County sheriff's deputies for help. They called WSU in nearby Pullman.
The veterinary experts captured the snake Tuesday night. They say it's slightly undernourished at 22 pounds. And they add that the cold-blooded creature suffered moderate burns when it curled up around a heater at the rental property in an effort to stay warm.
Vet school officials say it's the second time in a month that law enforcement officers have asked for help catching a large snake.
