Residents in Detroit were left in immense shock when they spotted an 18-foot python on the roof of a garage adjoining a home. This incident prompted the crowd to gather around the building and police to arrive at the scene. One woman did a Facebook live of the entire incident, and it garnered a lot of attention online.

''Oh my god it’s moving and it’s huge,'' neighbour Latonda Harvey was heard in a clip posted on social media. The snake was rescued by a young man who climbed at the top of the garage and was seen putting it on his shoulders and carrying it along the edge of the roof.

The 8-foot reticulated python, about 8 years old called Juliet, is actually a pet and had escaped from its cage after its owner forgot to put a lock. ''It was my fault that she did get out. ''[I] didn’t put the lock on probably. I was able to get here, get her back to her cage quick,” owner Devin Jones-White told Detroit’s WXYZ.
