WEST MILFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — You’ve heard of squirrels running amok in backyards and even the occasional frightening bear hanging out in a neighborhood tree, but a pair of pythons slithering along a lawn in New Jersey?

That’s exactly what a Garden State social studies teacher encountered in his West Milford yard just days apart.

Officers said the snakes were probably someone’s pets that were released outdoors.
