  Lost snake 'could attack kids'
Updated 24 June 2003, 07.57
A python
A missing python which could be a danger to kids and pets has gone missing in Sheffield.

Tracey, who's nearly three-and-a-half metres long, escaped from her home in Grimesthorpe on Sunday.

She smashed her way out of her glass cage which was in her owner's garage.

Hungry

Her owner, Paul Tomlinson, said she'd not been fed for two weeks and had been due to be fed her usual diet of rabbits and rats at the weekend.

This means she's hungry!

And Paul said there's a chance Tracey could attack people's pets, and possibly even children if she can smell animals on them.

People in Sheffield have been warned to be cautious, and to call the police if they spot Tracey slithering around.
