UPS Deliveryman Discovers Python in Truck

O'FALLON, Mo. (AP) -- A United Parcel Service deliveryman found a reptilian stowaway nestled among the packages in his truck.

Brian Adams, 41, first noticed the 9-foot albino python when he shifted some boxes after pulling into a parking lot Wednesday morning. He initially thought he was looking at a stuffed animal or rubber snake. But when he looked closer and noticed scales, he called his wife.

"Tina, you won't believe this, but there's a snake in the truck," he said.

Moments later, the python's head popped up when Adams nudged aside a small box in front of it.

"It's alive!" he yelled into the phone.

An O'Fallon animal control officer was called and the 31-pound snake was prodded into a cloth mailbag.

The python is staying at the St. Charles County Pet Adoption Center until the St. Louis Herpetological Society picks it up next week.

Adams doesn't know how the snake got into his truck. UPS doesn't deliver live animals.

Well, there's no pics, for one.



Man..... Brian Adams singing career must really be in the tank if he has to drive a UPS truck.

I bet that cuts like a knife, but if is doing what he likes, it must be straight from the heart, did he decide to do this in the summer of 69 ? If your package is late he will run to you. he will even deliver packages in the heat of the night.

The snake asked him what Al Pacinos gun was in "Heat"?

Sounds like someone tried to ship something labeled "leather products", and said leather product decided it didn't like the box it was in.

He hasn't sunk that low. Last place he was seen was when he played a demented hallucination of himself in the movie House Of Fools.

All about Hallucinated Brian Adams, crazy Russians (literally), and Chechen Rebels it was...
