Think back to your worst horror story about that super-annoying pet a neighbor had that drove you crazy. The man in this story would gladly have traded neighbors with you.
Normally, a neighbor with a python wouldn’t cause much of a problem. Even if it gets out of its cage, it’s not in your home.
For the guy in this story, that wasn’t enough distance between them.
An Austrian man has been bitten in the ‘genital area’ by his neighbour’s pet python after the snake escaped through a drain and ended up in his toilet.
The 65-year-old, from the southern city of Graz, was bitten around 6am Monday as he went to the toilet in his apartment.
Police said the man had just sat down when he felt a ‘pinch’ on his genitals and jumped to his feet, only to find a 5ft albino python staring back at him. — DailyMail
Since pythons are not venomous, the man’s injuries were minor. But since it came up out of the toilet, they were taking precautions for infection risks.
Police said the man keeps a total of 11 non-venomous snakes and a gecko in his apartment in specially-designed cages and drawers.
The reptile-owner was unaware the python had escaped until police brought it back, and said it is unclear how the snake managed it.
Its exact route into the neighbour’s apartment is also unclear. — — DailyMail
Suddenly the neighbor’s little yappy mutt doesn’t seem quite so bad.
