Home > Press Page

Tuesday, March 12, 2013Cook County Sheriff’s Eviction Unit deputies found an unusual inhabitant of a Chicago apartment this morning: a three-foot Burmese Python, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.

About 8:40 a.m., deputies enforcing a court-ordered eviction in the 500 block of East Bowen Avenue in Chicago found the python in an aquarium located in a bedroom of the apartment.

The apartment was unoccupied at the time. The City of Chicago Animal Control was called and removed the snake.

No injuries to the deputies or the snake were reported.

This isn’t the first time Eviction Unit deputies have found a reptile while enforcing a court order. During an eviction on Feb. 27 in the 4500 block of West George Street in Chicago, a 2-foot long alligator was found in an aquarium. No human residents were home.
Chicago Animal Control was called to take custody of the reptile.
