The Burnsville Police Department make a crazy discovery...
The department tweeted about discovering what it thought was an impressively long, meaty python on Tuesday. The snake had been meandering around the intersection of McAndrews Road and Nicollet Avenue, hopefully minding its own business, when officers found it.
The department was later corrected – it was not a python, but, in fact, a “Colombian red tail boa constrictor," which are accomplished climbers and can swallow prey larger than the diameter of their heads.
“Regardless of what it’s called I wouldn’t be picking it up,” the department tweeted.
