Kentucky Man Finds Python in Rental Car

June 5, 2006

PADUCAH, KY – Dan McBride, assistant athletic director at Eastern Kentucky University, recently found a two-foot-long ball python in his rental car as he left the Ohio Valley Conference baseball tournament in Paducah, according to the Associated Press. McBride got into his car Wednesday night with a colleague and saw the snake draped across the console.McBride reportedly said he thought it was a rubber snake someone put there as a joke and gave the snake a pat and put the car into drive. As he drove toward the exit, the snake lifted its head. McBride hit the brakes, then started to get out of the car. But the snake was on the gear shift, forcing McBride to keep his foot on the brake. The snake was captured, and was being held until its owner comes to claim it.
