FOND DU LAC — Students and
staff at Fond du Lac High School are a bit on edge as the
search continues for a missing python.
The 3-foot long snake
escaped from its cage at the high school sometime over the
Labor Day weekend. Principal Matt Steinbarth says there's
some evidence the snake entered the ventilation system at
Steinbarth says the snake,
called Kai, is nocturnal, so it's unlikely it would come
out of hiding during the day. The school says the snake
belongs to an instructor and has no history of harming
anyone or striking out.
The school has set some
traps to lure the snake back into captivity. Voicemails
and emails were sent to parents of the school's 2,000
students earlier this week about the snake's escape and
assuring them Kai does not pose a threat.
