An Orient woman woke up Monday morning to find a Burmese python staring at her from the top of her television.
“I was sleeping on my couch, which I often do at night while watching old movies,” Leslie Provatas said. “I woke up about 5:30 Monday morning with the feeling that I was being watched. I looked across the room and there was this snake looking right at me. We had an eye-to-eye moment.”
Police said they do not know where the snake came from. It has since been taken to the Southold Town Animal shelter.
