(WXYZ) - A woman got quite the surprise while returning bottles at Kroger in Southfield this week.
In the bottom of her bag of returnables: a slithering 18-inch python.
Police tell us after she made the scaly discovery, she immediately called the Southfield Police Department.
A wildlife educator, Dan Briere, is currently caring for the African ball python. Briere believes it is someone's pet and he is hoping he can return it to its rightful owner.
