Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

SYD­NEY: Pas­sen­gers on a com­muter train got a shock when a young man pulled a 1m python out of his back­pack to ex­plain why the pack was wrig­gling, Aus­tralian police said on Wed­nes­day.

Some pas­sen­gers were con­cerned for the wel­fare of the snake and called the police who met the 20-yearold man at Woy Woy sta­tion, 80km north of Syd­ney.

He ad­mit­ted he did not have a per­mit for the python, which can grow to more than 2m.

Police con­fis­cated the snake and asked ex­perts from a nearby rep­tile park to ex­am­ine it– ANA-dp
