(CS) Early Saturday morning brought a strange surprise for a couple of walkers in the Engelsbësch forest close to Niederanven, as they discovered a two metre long python in the shrubbery.

An expert of the civil protection in Berdorf caught the animal within half an hour, after the walkers who spotted the snake had alarmed emergency services.

As the animal was found far from any village or housing, it is assumed that the owner of the animal had set it free in the forest.

The snake was brought to a veterinarian, after it was found to have a light head injury.
