12-15 Foot Python Captured In Illinois

September 19, 2012 by  

WAUKEGAN, Ill., (UPI) –  Authorities in Illinois said a landscaper working across from a Lake Michigan beach discovered a 12-foot to 15-foot Burmese python.

Waukegan Police Lt. Edward Fitzgerald said the yellow snake was spotted by a man trimming bushes Monday near Waukegan Municipal Beach and the reptile was captured without incident by Animal Control officers, the Chicago Sun-Times Media Network reported Tuesday.

“It was a little lethargic, because it’s been cold out and they’re cold-blooded. It wasn’t aggressive at all,” Fitzgerald said.

He said the snake, which he said was likely abandoned by its owner, “kind of livened up a little bit” after being taken to the Wildlife Discovery Center in Lake Forest.

Fitzgerald said the snake is being treated for an unspecified illness at the discovery center.
