Gardai were called to a park in North Leitrim after a python was spotted on the loose by a Sunday stroller.

The snake, identified as a python by the Leitrim Observer, was discovered in Kinlough Park yesterday (Sunday July 8).

A Reddit user shared a photo of the snake with the caption:

'Entrance to the forest walk at the eco park in Kinlough. Thought it was fake when I first seen it earlier but have seen a few photos posted now.

'The gardai where called and contacted the ISPCA who are currently searching the park. Homegrown or left go free?'


We don't reckon we would have hung around to get that photo...
