PARSONS, Kan. (AP) -- Police in a southeast Kansas community are asking the public to be alert for an escaped python.
The Parsons Police Department says officers responded late Thursday to a report of a large snake outside a home.
Officers tracked down the python's owner in the same neighborhood. The owner said the snake, reported to be 5 to 6 feet long, said the pet had been missing since earlier in the week.
The python remained at large Friday afternoon.
