WEST MILFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — You’ve heard of squirrels running amok in backyards and even the occasional frightening bear hanging out in a neighborhood tree, but a pair of pythons slithering along a lawn in New Jersey?
That’s exactly what a Garden State social studies teacher encountered in his West Milford yard just days apart.
James Geist said he was relaxing on his deck a week ago, when he spotted his first visitor — a 16-foot albino python. He called local police, who dispatched a snake handler.
Four days later, he looked out the window and saw a 10-foot python. Again, the snake-fearing Geist called Animal Control, which took care of it.
Officers said the snakes were probably someone’s pets that were released outdoors.
Animal Control said the snakes were docile, probably because they had just eaten.
