Imagine finding out your dog is actually barking at a giant snake? A family living in Marietta, Georgia says they awoke Wednesday morning (October 6th) when their dog started to bark loudly on the back porch. The homeowner discovered the dog was actually barking at a Burmese python that slithered across its bed and then onto a porch chair. The family contacted animal control, which took custody of the snake and confirmed it was a Burmese python. The officers say it was likely an escaped pet. The snake is being kept at an animal control facility while officials try to locate its owner.
