There seems to be a trend among people who house dangerous, exotic and/or illegal pets in their home: they end up attacked by their very own beloved creature.

Such is the case for a Kansas woman who, after harboring a secret pet python, wound up with its jaws around her neck until a police officer intervened.

The 8-foot-long albino python made its move after twenty-something Chrystal Wilson took it out for feeding.

Instead of chowing down on the grub provided by Wilson, the angry snake decided to feed on its owner instead. A child in the home called police and, once on scene, officer Max Bryant pried the jaws off of Wilson's neck.

Bryant received a citation for bravery while Wilson received a misdemeanor for harboring the snake.
