Python found wrapped around baby’s foot in apartment

Illinois – Police say a 2-foot-long ball python slithered its way into an Illinois apartment and wrapped itself around the foot of a sleeping 1-year-old boy and bit him on his left foot.

Mattoon Police Department Deputy Chief Jason Taylor said the boy’s parents were awakened by the child’s noises to find the snake attacking their son about 11 p.m., the Mattoon Journal-Gazette & Times-Courier reported.

The father, Devin Winans, used a blanket to pull the python off the child, and his mother took the boy to a health center for treatment of a bite mark, bruise and scratches, the newspaper reported.

Investigators believe the python escaped from a neighboring apartment within the building, Taylor said. Police have not been able to find the owner.  Click here to read more Nutty News Stories at Nutty News Today - new stories added all day every day
