NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - Nampa police officers are looking for the owners of a ball python after the reptile was found slithering across the street of a residential neighborhood.

KTVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1KbfqeN ) that after officers found the snake Wednesday, they knocked on doors around the neighborhood looking for the owner but no one claimed it as their pet. Officers snagged the snake and took it back to the station for photos with members of the department.

Sgt. Joe Ramirez says the python is very friendly. It was taken to the West Valley Humane Society Animal Shelter on Thursday. Snake owners missing their pet should call the shelter.

This is not the first snake officers have met. Police told Nampa residents in September to keep an eye out for a 9-foot-long boa constrictor that escaped its cage.
