On June 27, 2016, a poodle in Mishicot was attacked by a python. The tenants of the apartment called the Manitowoc County Police and claimed the ball python bit their dog’s ear and then wrapped itself around the dog. One of the tenants threw the snake out a window and the deputies lost it.
Officers were dispatched the next day when a snake was found on the patio where the python should’ve been. The snake was hidden behind a plastic container and Wildlife of Wisconsin was called in to capture it. Police cited the snake’s owners with obstruction for misleading officers during their first investigation. Police Chief Paul Granger said they had told deputies that the snake wasn’t theirs, and Mishicot officers found out later that it was.
