Is Wisconsin the new south Florida? It appears that way after a 10-foot python was recently spotted slithering across a road in the land of cheese.

From this story on

Officials in the Navarino Wildlife Area say it’s like finding a needle in a haystack. A ten-foot python snake is on the loose in the Shawano County reserve that covers 15,000 acres. The snake was spotted over Memorial Day weekend, and crews and volunteers have been searching for it ever since.

Despite several coordinated searches, the snake has not been found. Although officials say it’s almost certainly just an escaped or released pet, and that the snake may very well have succumbed to chilly night temperatures, the fact remains that a giant snake is out there, roaming the wilds of Wisconsin. If it ever learns how to knit itself a little snake bootie to keep warm, we’re doomed.
