VILLAS, N.J. - A python - or boa constrictor - is on the loose in this Cape May County community, but animal control says it's probably not looking for a meal any time soon. Last week, a resident saw the snake eating a seagull in a tree in her backyard. She snapped a photo but didn't think to call it in until days later, said Linda Gentille, the public information officer for Shore Animal Control. Describing the snake's behavior as "terrorizing" might be a bit of a stretch, Gentille said.

In an e-mail to constituents, Jenny Brown credited "public pressure" with forestalling the new contract vote for manager Doug Cleland. Brown claimed in her e-mail that Cleland's contract was due for a vote Wednesday night during the board of commissioners meeting, before the board had time to become familiar with the terms.
