Oklahoma Teen Discovers 14-Foot-Long Python in Backyard

KFOR

A teen was shocked to find a huge 14-foot-long python in his backyard; Dad goes and gets his gun.

A barking dog alerted 15-year-old JC Lara to an intruder in his yard. Shockingly, he discovered it was actually a huge 14-foot-long python snake. Although they have seen small snakes on their Cement, Oklahoma property in the past, nothing has been comparable to this find.

Lara and his Dad ultimately shot the snake, after realizing a shovel might not get the job done.

With small kids living in the area, killing the snake was the right decision for the Lara family. “This is why we built the fence, for creatures not to get in and for them to actually play safe, and seeing that here is just scary,” Lara said.

The snake was ultimately buried.
