Snake Surprises Md. Woman Watching TV

GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) -- Anne Arundel County police say a Glen Burnie woman was surprised by a three-foot python that slithered out from behind her media stand while she watched television in her living room.

It happened Sunday at the woman's apartment in the 8000 block of Green Orchard Road.

The woman, who has lived in the apartment for two months, does not own the snake. Officers believe the snake was left behind by a previous tenant.

The snake will remain at Animal Control in Millersville for five days to give its owner a chance to pick it up. If it's not claimed, officers say the snake will be sent to a rescue organization.
