CEMENT, OK (WCMH) – A teen made a terrifying discovery when he opened up his door to check on his dog one night.
“I was just sitting on my couch, and I heard my dog barking,” JC Lara told KFOR-TV. “He was like in the middle of the yard, and I was like ‘What’s going on?’ He’s like barking at the side of the house.”
Lara then opened the door to see what had his dog so riled up.
“I come outside, and the snake is literally slithering in our yard, and I’m like ‘Oh, no, this is a dream.’ So, I shut the door and open it back up,” said Lara. “It’s for sure not a dream. So, I go tell my dad.”
That snake was a 14-foot-long python.
“My dad was like ‘Hey, just go get the shovel’ and I was like ‘No, we need the gun. Like, this is a huge snake.’ I didn’t know how long it was at the time, but I knew it was big enough to eat someone, you know,” Lara said.
Lara and his dad then shot the snake and buried it in the yard, something they thought they needed to do because several small kids live in the area.
