    A woman found a 3-foot python in her apartment Monday night on Chicago’s South Side. 

    Police were called to the Englewood neighborhood home in the 6500 block of South Normal just after 10 p.m. after the woman said she found the massive python in her bathroom. 

    It is the fourth time a snake has invaded her apartment, police said. Residents say an old neighbor in the building used to breed the animals, and some believe some may have been left behind. 

    This time the python was discovered wrapped around the shower curtain, the woman said. 

    Chicago Animal Care and Control were dispatched to the apartment and were able to capture the snake, which was reported to be harmless, police said.
