A young man detained by police during a drunken argument in Germany was found to be carrying a baby python in his trousers, and may be in trouble under animal welfare laws 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 down his trousers, 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. Police said Wednesday they were looking for the reptile’s owner and examining whether “the non-species-appropriate transport” violated animal protection laws.
