As you may recall, last Friday I
single-handedly wrestled a King Cobra to the ground watched a Decatur Animal Control officer snag a big ol' snake on the courthouse square of Decatur.
Many asked what type of snake it was. The answer is: I still don't know. Yesterday, a buddy told me, in all seriousness, that it was some type of python that had probably escaped its owner's home. I told him he was crazy and that was no longer my friend.
But some of the mystery as to why there would be a snake under a sidewalk bench in Decatur was revealed this morning. As I was walking to the courthouse, a lady scared the crap out of me by screaming and pointing down. I looked down and saw a pretty good sized mouse run across my foot. I, in turn, screamed like a school girl.
So we at least know where his food supply came from.
