On Monday, the British Police ended their search operation for around three-meter python, after concluding that it only creates a risk to small animals and not to people in the city of Cambridge, where it was last seen.

The 2.7-metre reticulated python, a species native to Asia and is considered to be the longest snake in the world, was last spotted on a street in the north of Cambridge in the early hours on June 30. 

A police officer was quoted saying, “We have had no further sightings of a reticulated python reported in Cambridge,” adding that “the snake is only a risk to small creatures.”

A python kills its prey by tightness rather than poisonous venom. It usually eats mammals, like rats, but there have been reported human death in the wild and captivity. 

British Police reported that they have almost located the python owner but did not say anything more about the man. 

A spokesperson from the RSPCA Animal Welfare Charity said, “If anyone finds a snake they believe is non-native the RSPCA’s advice is to keep a safe distance, monitor the snake and call the charity’s helpline.”
