A metre-and-a-half long snake, possibly a python, was on the loose in London, Ont., yesterday after the reptile managed to slither away from police trying to catch it.

Officers responded to a call late Saturday night of a snake on the loose in a residential neighbourhood.

Officers arrived on the scene and saw the snake.

“We had an officer out there who is somewhat familiar with snakes, and he’s the one that thinks it’s a python, but that’s totally unconfirmed,” said Const. Jane Crosby.

Officers attempted to corner and catch the large snake, but it moved under the front steps of a vacant home.

Police and animal control were searching for the snake yesterday morning, and canvassed the neighbourhood to see if anyone may have owned the reptile. Crosby said there have been no reports of a missing snake.
