Snake on a pane: Dudley couple shocked to find python on vanity mirror

A couple from Dudley were left shocked after discovering a 5ft python in their bedroom.

The yellow snake was removed by West Midlands police after it was found wrapped around a vanity mirror at the couple’s home in Quarry Bank, Dudley.

Police said the couple, who had no idea where the reptile had come from, explained that they had a big item delivered the day before, but were not sure if the snake had been hiding in the box or if it had come into the house through a pipe.

The RSPCA usually handles this type of incident, but nobody from the rescue charity was available when police took the call just after 10pm on Wednesday.

Officers went to the couple’s home and were sent to a front bedroom. 長い検索の後, the snake was found on top of a cabinet, wrapped around a mirror.

The officers used batons to carefully lift the snake, which was about 5ft long, and put it in a shoe box with holes in.

Manor Vets in Halesowen took the snake in overnight until the RSPCA were able to have it. A vet told the police it was a mature female python.

Police said the snake had a few lumps and old injuries, but was very friendly and generally otherwise in good health.
