Madison book club has quite a tale to tell
Submitted By AP Wire Service
MADISON, Wis. (AP), Jan 27 - Members of a Madison book club have quite a story to discuss. And, it doesn't have anything to do with a book.
One of the book club members decided to take a pet python out of its terrarium during a recent meeting at a host's home. The 31-year-old woman says she had experience handling snakes and just wanted to hold it. The normally docile snake named Annie latched on to the woman's cheek and wouldn't let go.
Police and paramedics were summoned. But, Annie wouldn't let go until her owner arrived home and detached her. The woman's bite was disinfected.
Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain says the book club members could write their own non-fiction piece involving a protagonist named Annie.
