SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Department of Animal Services is caring for a three and a half foot python that a man found in a dumpster and took to a police station.
The man was rummaging for recyclables Wednesday morning in Logan Heights, when he happened upon the snake in a grocery bag.
He took it to a nearby police station and handed it over to officers who first thought it was a boa constrictor.
The snake appeared to be well fed and in good health, but no one knows where it came from.
It will be held at the Gaines Street shelter for three days to give its owner a chance to claim it. Then it will be put up for adoption.
