    He called the fire department, but firefighters said the snake was "big" and left, Siemon said.

    It was a slithery situation, but eventually, Siemon and Barrett were able to pull the python out and put it in a trash can.


    Trapper said he wouldn’t bite, but you know what? He has teeth, he’s going to bite something, Siemon said.


    Barrett said the snake was calm and didn’t try to bite or injure anyone.


    Snake wrangler Bob Cross said he is keeping the python safe and it will not be harmed. Cross said the snake is most likely a pet and it has a very docile nature.
