Report: 7-foot python lost in Seattle park
SEATTLE (AP) -- A Seattle Animal Shelter spokeswoman says a 7-foot-long python has been reported lost in a city park.
Ann Graves tells Seattlepi.com that the nonvenomous snake was reported missing by a man who spends time in Seattle's University District and carries the python as a pet. The shelter spokeswoman says at some point Monday morning, the man was in Ravenna Park when the snake got away.
Pythons kill their prey by squeezing it.
Gravels says pythons are legal in Seattle as long as they're not more than 8 feet long.
