Two huge pythons are on the loose in an exclusive beachside suburb after the animals were dumped by a woman’s ex-boyfriend following a bitter breakup.
The woman posted to the Coogee and Randwick Local Loop community Facebook page on Wednesday begging for help to find her beloved 2.5m snakes – even offering a reward.
‘My s**** ex threw a tantrum when I broke up with him and dumped my lovely hand-reared pet pythons out in a fit of anger (on Mount Street in Coogee),’ she wrote.

‘I’m really scared for their safety, so please if anyone has seen them let me know… they are quite sweet and don’t bite.’
‘The brown one is called Bagel and the albino is called Mango.’
Both animals aged five and six, have been with Ms Dodson since they were born and could be prone to the dangers of the wild.
The snakes are native to Australia but are not native to the Sydney region.
Under the NSW Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016, ‘a person who, without authority, liberates in New South Wales any animal (other than a captured protected animal) is guilty of an offence’.
NSW Police told Daily Mail Australia they are not aware of this incident and it has not been reported.
