Cape Coral Couple Find 9-Foot Python Outside Their Home
If there is one thing I hate, it’s snakes. One Cape Coral couple found a 9-foot python outside their home.
We know all about pythons in the Everglades. They’ve completely taken over. But we don’t often have to worry about snakes like THAT in Fort Myers or Cape Coral. So imagine the surprise that Cape Coral residents Kevin Monroe and his wife had when they saw a 9-foot python outside their home.
The Monroe’s had just gotten home from vacation when they told NBC2 they saw a “very long shadow”. And that is when they realized it was a Burmese python right there in their driveway near their garbage can. A situation, I too wouldn’t know how to handle, they said they started calling around to try to find someone to come and help get rid of this massive snake.
The couple and the neighbors took Cape Coral python matters into their own hands.
I feel like this is something that needed to be captured on video. With FWC unavailable to help at that time, Kevin Monroe and his neighbors decided to wrangle the snake themselves and NBC2 reports they humanely killed the python at the advice of the game commissioner.
As mentioned above, these snakes are primarily found in the Glades, however they are mobile so anywhere in Florida, it’s wise to keep your eyes peeled. If you do happen to see a Burmese Python, FWC wants you to take a photo, note your location and report the sighting to the FWC Exotic Species Hotline at 888-483-4681.
