Biting The Face That Feeds You
Albino python latches onto owner's face.
A Kansas police officer is being hailed a hero for freeing an albino python from the neck of its owner.
The owner, Chrystal Wilson, was treated at the hospital for piercings to her neck and released.
The incident happened earlier this week at her home in Lyons.
Police say her albino python latched onto her neck when she took it out of its cage to feed it.
Her children called 911 for help.
Officer Max Bryant responded to the call.
He was shocked to see the eight-foot python latched to her neck, but he quickly took the snake by its jaws, slowly prying it from her neck.
While the City of Lyons is calling him a hero, honoring him for his bravery, Officer Bryant says he was just doing his job.
The snake is now with a friend because police are concerned for the safety of her children.
Wilson is also being cited for harboring a vicious animal.
