Video: Python Captured in Moscow Trashcans

Max Pixel

Emergency workers in Russia have captured a python discovered in a Moscow courtyard.

The animal was found among trash cans of the residential building on Dmitrov Shosse. 

Russian news outlets have released reports on the snake's size, with unnamed sources telling Russia's TASS news agency that the animal was 5 meters long.

Employees at Moscow Zoo who examined the animal told Russia's RIA Novosti that the python had been found in "poor condition."

An investigation to find the snake's owner is ongoing. 

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
