The millavaise to the rescue of which came firefighters and police Thursday, June 1 in the evening had discovered the reptile lying next to its toilets, reports to the Figaro the Departmental Fire and Rescue Service of Aveyron (Sdis12), confirming information from Centre Presse Aveyron. The resident of the building quickly closed the door before calling for help at 22:55 p.m.
The snake was a white python and was about two meters tall. This breed is fortunately not venomous and sometimes acts as a pet. "The police made a quick neighborhood investigation to find the owner," says Sdis12. A woman whose apartment was located a few floors higher held the specimen in a vivarium. He had escaped before slipping into the toilet pipe, only to emerge through the toilet bowl a few floors below.

The owner of the white python is not the only one to own incongruous animals, since the Aveyron rescue has among them "firefighters specialized in the "NAC" - the new domestic animals - who handle all unusual requests," explains the Sdis12. "But this is not the common intervention, usually it is rather cows or sheep fallen into ravines," says the firefighter interviewed by Le Figaro. An investigation is being conducted to determine if the owner of the animal was within her rights by raising the python at home, Millau police told Centre Presse Aveyron.
