A City of Calgary news release had said earlier that the man had been unpacking his suitcase from a trip to India, but CBC reporter Devin Heroux later found out that the man was just arriving home from his job.
The man immediately left his Fish Creek Park apartment and called the police.
He told police, "it went one direction, I went the other," said Insp. Patty McCallum.
I'll bet he went the other direction! How scary would that be? And like I would wan to stay in the house overnight when they haven't caught the snake?
