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.
James Geist said he was relaxing on his deck a week ago, when he spotted his first visitor — a 16-foot albino python. He called local police, who dispatched a snake handler.
