Waukegan worker picking up trash finds python
WAUKEGAN – A worker picking up trash in Waukegan found something he wasn't expecting: a 12- to 15-foot Burmese python.
Waukegan Police Lt. Ed Fitzgerald said the pale yellow snake was found Monday outside an industrial building near the Lake Michigan shore, about 40 miles north of Chicago.
Fitzgerald said animal control officers took the snake into custody with no problem, although it took a couple of people to wrangle the large creature. He says the reptile was lethargic because of the cool temperatures.
