Sic ‘Em

Fetch!Quick little story showing that I’m not the only one who doesn’t listen to his owner. Thankfully for a Bridgeport, Ct police officer, neither do snakes.

Police officers in Bridgeport, Connecticut, responded Tuesday to a report of domestic disturbance. Apparently, 21-year-old Victor Rodriguez was threatening his girlfriend with his pet python.

As the officers entered the apartment, Rodriguez threatened them, ordering his 3-metre-long pet snake to “Get them!”.

Seeing as the police officer was larger than your average defenseless gerbil treat, the python just lay there, hissing instead.

Rodriguez was arrested and charged with threatening police officers. His pet snake was taken to an animal control centre.

At the animal control center, the python will learn basic obedience including the meaning of “Get Them!”
