LAST YEAR, police in Delaware County dealt with a runaway cow, a drug-dealer's alligator and a Vietnamese micro potbellied pig named "Steve" that made national headlines.
Yesterday, it was ball python snakes. Twenty of them.
Cops in Ridley Township were searching last night for a gunman who they believe shot a Doylestown man in the Woodlyn Shopping Center during a $12,600 snake deal gone wrong.
Police say the victim, who was in stable condition at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, had planned to meet a man from New York City who had agreed to purchase the pythons in the parking lot. But the deal apparently went bad.
