Kentucky python attacks Newport reptile shop owner “Video”

A Kentucky man is in critical condition after being attacked by a large python at a reptile shop.

Kentucky police tell local news outlets that owner Terry Wilkens was feeding the snake Monday morning when the 125-pound (56.7-kilogram) python attacked.

Police Chief Tom Collins says Wilkens wasn’t breathing when officers were trying to free him, but he did resume breathing before he was taken to a hospital. Collins says Wilkens’ health appears to improving and he’s even talking.

Collins says one of the two responding officers, Lt. Gregory Ripberger, knew to uncurl the snake by grabbing it from its head, eventually freeing Wilkens.

Police were working with animal control to determine if the python would need to be removed from the shop.
