Snake Found On Property Stuns Homeowner - Immediately Calls Authorities After Taking A Closer Look

People have the weirdest ideas when it comes to religion and superstitions. For example, a ball python that was apparently seriously abused as part of a bizarre religious ritual was recently found in Florida.

It seems a juvenile ball python was located by firefighters in the Sunshine State who were responding to a call from a homeowner about a large snake on their lawn. When the emergency response team got there, they discovered that the snake had its mouth sewn shut with string.

Veteran firefighter Scott Mullin explained that the snake was a ball python, a variety popular with pet owners because of their docile nature.

Mullen posted about his unusual experience with the mutilated snake on his Facebook page:

“I had a strange call today. I picked up this baby ball python. It was found outside a home in South Dade. The family had never seen it before. I reached down and gently picked it up. Now I have never come across a ball python that was not a sweetheart. They are by nature very docile snakes. They truly make a great pet. Well as you can see from the pictures someone {had sewn] her mouth shut. I have never seen this done. I did see a show once on snake charmers in India who sewed the mouths of cobras shut to ensure they would not bite the snake charmer but this is a first for me here in the States.”

Note that after he found the fourteen-inch long python on the homeowner’s lawn, Mullen took it to a friend who breeds exotic snakes. The two of them managed to painstakingly remove the stitches that closed the snake’s mouth and start treating a serious fungal infection in the reptile’s mouth.

Mullen noted they were not able to make an accurate estimate of how long the python had its mouth sewn shut.
