Not the snake charmer she thought she was — Madis­ons police said the 31-year-old woman was attend­ing a book club meet­ing and decided to take Annie, a 12-year-old ball python mea­sur­ing about 4 feet long, out of its ter­rar­ium. She appar­ently had prior expe­ri­ence han­dling snakes and had no rea­son to believe she was putting her­self in dan­ger.  “How­ever, the non-venomous snake bit into the woman’s right cheek and refused to dis­en­gage until the owner was able to remove it! The women ended up with no scars and no last­ing emo­tional trauma.”

Inves­ti­ga­tors said a man and a woman were seen flee­ing the area on bicy­cles and a man was later appre­hended when he was found to be in pos­ses­sion of the stolen now man-purse.
