JURUPA VALLEY, Calif. - A really big dead snake turned up in trash at a Riverside County dump.

The 17-foot-7-inch albino Burmese python was found Monday at the Agua Mansa Transfer Station in Jurupa Valley.

The Press-Enterprise says the county Department of Animal Services believes it's likely the snake died of natural causes and its owner illegally dumped it.
