Exotic Animal Incident Report

Reported: Aug 20, 1995
Location: Madison, Wisconsin

Animal: Python
Animal Disposition: removed/re-housed

Facility Type: Exotic Pet
Facility Name: unknown

Category: Attack resulting in human injury
Species: Reptile

Summary: An 8-ft-long, 45-lb python attacked a university lab technician when he was holding the snake, Ganja, while her cage was cleaned. The snake clamped her fangs around the man’s nose. It took five people to control the snake and work its mouth off his nose. The 24-year-old man had helped care for the snake for more than three years. The snake’s "owner" removed her from the lab and found alternate housing for her.
