Animal welfare officials were alerted by a concerned member of the public who spotted the snake near Shard End Lake around 7.30am Tuesday.

But when inspectors arrived, the person who spotted the animal was gone and they couldn’t find the python.

The snake is believed to have been abandoned by its owner.

But the ball python – which can grow up to 5ft – has scared locals about what it could do to their pets and children.

One person wrote on social media: “I’m taking my two kids and my dog ​​upstairs, I certainly won’t be for a while now. Creepy stuff.”

Another chimed: “What idiot would leave a live snake in a family park. Not only a risk to others, but this snake probably won’t survive five minutes.”

While a third added: “I’m not taking any chances. A python is a python at the end of the day and will be looking for prey.”

But a fourth seemed to see the funny side, noting: “Relax guys, it won’t choke your prized Labradoodle, it will most likely be looking for rats and mice.”

The RSPCA is now asking anyone with information about the snake’s whereabouts or how it was released to get in touch with them.

A spokesman for the charity said: “We are genuinely concerned about this cold weather snake and are urging anyone who has spotted the ball python to get in touch with us so we can help get the snake to safety.

“Unfortunately, this is not uncommon and we receive numerous calls related to exotic pets such as snakes and lizards, some of which have been abandoned by their owners.”
