SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A University of Utah student coming home from a physics study session got an unwelcome lesson in zoology.
Angela Jones says she noticed an 8-foot Burmese python when she looked down on her way to the door Wednesday. The 23-year-old biochemistry major called animal control and kept an eye on the snake as it slithered away and up the street.
An animal control officer quickly caught the python and took it to a rescue shelter designed for large snakes.
Salt Lake County Animal Services says the snake appeared to be a well-fed pet.
