BERLIN (AP) – A young man detained by police during a drunken argument in Germany was found to be carrying a baby python in his pants, and may be in trouble under animal welfare laws.
Police in the southwestern city of Darmstadt said the 19-year-old was detained on Tuesday night after a loud argument with another man disturbed residents. They said he was searched and officers noticed “a significant bulge in his trousers.”
The man told officers that he had a snake in his pants, and pulled out a 35-centimetre baby king python.
He was taken to a police cell to sober up, and the snake put in a box.
