A python estimated to be about 7 feet long was located along a roadway in Towson on Sunday night, according to Baltimore County police.
Shortly after 9:30 p.m., police received a call from a local resident who said he had seen the snake on the roadway in the 1300 block of Taylor Avenue.
By the time police responded, the snake had moved into a nearby bush, a police dispatcher said.
Animal control was then called to remove the snake from the neighborhood, the dispatcher said.
Police did not know where the snake had come from.
