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 twentysomething 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.
