NJ Man Finds 2 Pythons in Backyard

Animal Control believes the snakes were released by someone in the neighborhood

Summer vacation has been anything but routine for a New York City social studies teacher who lives in northern New Jersey.
James Geist has spotted tropical snakes twice within days in his West Milford yard.
Geist was reading on his deck when he thought he saw a branch move on July 23. He soon realized it was a snake.
Police arrived with two snake handlers who told Geist the branch was a 15-foot albino python.
Geist tells The Record newspaper the snake was huge, thick and docile.
Four days later, Geist saw another snake. This time it was a 10-foot python.
Animal control believes the snakes were released by someone who had moved from the neighborhood.
