OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — An Overland Park resident may not get their mail on Friday due to an unusual guest.
The Overland Park Police Department says a mail carrier alerted animal control to a rather large ball python slithering around their mailbox.
A Ball Python was found my a mailman and called Animal Control. The poor resident did not receive their mail today (obviously). The @OPPD_PIO is trying to talk the Animal Control Officers to put the snake under the @OPPD_Chief desk, but they won’t. pic.twitter.com/YqahoO2pVn

The department said in jest that they’re working to convince animal control to relocate the python underneath the police chief’s desk.
Police say the python is in a foster home right now until they can locate its rightful owner. A snake expert told officers that it was obvious the python had been cared for.
