LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4) – Animal control officers rounded up a 5-foot-long python over the weekend.

A homeowner spotted the snake on the 700 block of 8th Avenue in a yard and quickly called animal control.

Several weeks before, someone had spotted the same snake slithering under the hood of a car and authorities had been searching it ever since.
