Man kills a nearly 15-foot python
The long reptile had been spotted in the weekend. There had also been reports of animals missing- two dogs and three chickens.
Pauline Horstdaniel who saw the snake said her dog started barking intensely around 2:30 a.m on Tuesday morning (July 28). Horstdaniel went out to the yard and saw a massive snake.
“I was terrified. I got my husband out of bed. He’s out there in his underwear with his gun” said Horstdaniel.
The couple thought the handgun couldn't kill the huge snake, so Horstdaniel called her father-in-law who killed the snake with two his shotgun.
