    California - 20 Foot Python Captured In Riverside's Lake Evans

    20 Foot Python Captured In Riverside's Lake Evans

    It's believed the 60 pound Burmese python was dumped at the park.

    RIVERSIDE -- The Loch Ness Monster has nothing on Riverside County's own 'Monster of Lake Evans.' This "monster" turned out to be a very real 20 foot Burmese python.

    Riverside County Animal Control Officer Kristina Hillegart captured the huge snake on Friday, dubbing it the "Monster of Lake Evans."

    Hillegart responded to a report of a huge snake slithering out of Lake Evans, north of Riverside in Fairmont Park.

    What she found was a 20-foot-long, 60 pound Burmese python near the bank of the lake.

    Animal control officers believe the snake was dumped at the park when it got too big for the owner to take care of.

    Hillegart was able to wrangle the serpent and get it into her vehicle without too much trouble.

    Burmese pythons, while very large, are also considered docile and easy to handle.

    The 'Monster of Lake Evans' is now in the able care of an animal control employee with a love for things that slither.

    If no one claims the snake, it will be given to a rescue group that specializes in caring for exotic pets.

    This is the second time in a year that a big snake has been found in Riverside County.

    In August, two animal control officers managed to capture an 11-foot-long, 50 pound Burmese python.

    That snake was returned to its owner.
