Ball Python found with its mouth sewn shut

- A critter wrangler in South Florida made an alarming discovery.

Scott Mullin, with Venom One, was called to a home in southern Miami-Dade county where a family had seen a snake in their yard.

He picked it up and discovered it was a baby Ball Python.  The family had never seen it before.

After looking at it closer, Mullin discoverd someone had sewn its mouth shut.  Mullin had never seen anything like it before.  He can't understand why anyone would do something so horrible.

He took the snake to a friend who breeds Ball Pythons and with his help gently removed the stitches.

Mullin posted the pictures on Facebook and wonders why anyone would have done that to a gentle snake.
