A Californian man has been arrested for biting a pet python twice, leaving it seriously hurt, police say.
Police found David Senk, 54, lying at the scene, where a witness accused him of taking two bites out of the snake.
The python is recovering after being given emergency surgery.
It was turned over to the city’s Animal Care Services after losing a few ribs.
“She’s doing well,” BBC News quoted Gina Knepp, acting animal care services manager, as telling the Sacramento Bee.
“We did surgery on her last night and I think we saved her life.”
Mr Senk was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully maiming or mutilating a reptile.
While in jail, Mr Senk told local media that he had no memory of the incident and that he had a drinking problem.
‘I did what?’ Mr Senk said. “If you find the owner, tell him I’m real sorry. ... I’m willing to help pay for medical expenses.”
No owner has come forward to claim the python from Sacramento’s Animal Care Services.
Ms Knepp said before the surgery that the bites on the three-foot snake were large enough to expose the animal’s liver.
