Default Interesting story

A police officer shared this with me yesterday. He was called out to a home and while there, got to talking with the owner, who shared this story.

When they bought the home, they wanted a pet, so they got one. About 3-4 months later, it disappeared. They got another pet. Same thing happened. Finally, after going through 4 pets, only to have them disappear, he said he wasn't getting another one.

He and his wife were watching tv one night, when the heater vent started coming up. A python was coming up through the heating duct!!!!

It turns out that the python belonged to the previous owner. Python had gotten out of its aquarium. Owner thought it was outside and probably died since they can't survive in cold temps.

What the python did was go to the basement and coil itself around the water heater for warmth. When it got hungry, it came up through the heating ducts and THAT is what caused all four pets to 'disappear.'

I feel bad for their pets, but it's a good thing they didn't have children!

Default My thoughts!

Spirited1, that was what I thought! Thank goodness they didn't bring a new baby home during this time!
