ROME, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Police in Rome said they have captured one of two pythons seen slithering down a street near an exotic pet store Tuesday morning.

Investigators said the snakes were seen near a pet shop in the Torpignattara neighborhood early Tuesday and were likely abandoned in front of the store before it opened, Italy's ANSA news agency reported Tuesday.

Police said they were able to capture one of the snakes and they were still searching for the other animal Tuesday.
