A python in Paris: police fishes giant snake out of Seine River

Photo published in PPrama, the Paris police's weekly news bulletin.
 
The Paris river patrol made an unusual catch in the Seine last week: a headless python. According to the police report, it measured three meters, weighed 40 kilograms and was starting to decompose.
 
In the latest edition of its weekly news bulletin, the city’s police raised concerns about the frequency with which Parisians threw their pets into the Seine: “This incident illustrates the sad destiny of numerous pets in this city, who are bought as babies and become burdensome to their owners as they grow up, often in cramped quarters.”

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site.
It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appearance.
I must say you've done a superb job with this.
Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox.
Excellent Blog!

Um really shocked. I didn't realize but now that France has stupid people like those !

If the python was kept as a pet then it is rather strange how the owner got permission to keep it as such. Keeping wild life as pet should not be permitted.
