The couple on Pine Street was terrified. They walked out of their house at about 9:30 on a November evening, only to find this 10-foot python lounging on their front porch. They ran back inside and called the cops, who dispatched Animal Control. Jersey City Animal Control Officer Jevon Anderson answered the call. “The couple gave me a pillow case to put him in to keep him warm and secluded so his skin wouldn’t peel,” Anderson said. “Then I took him to the humane society.” Anderson acknowledged that this was his first snake call. “But I went to school for this,” he said. “I’m very hands on and compassionate when it comes to animals—dogs, cats, wildlife, birds, squirrels, raccoons, possums. It’s interesting. I love my job.”—JCM
