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.

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.
