The Nebraska Humane Society has seized three Burmese pythons from a flooded home in the Omaha suburb of King Lake.

The humane society says it discovered the snakes while investigating a report earlier this week about a snake on the loose. It says each of the pythons was 9 to 10 feet long and weighed 25 pounds. The snakes can grow to 20 feet long.

The snakes' owner, 39-year-old Randy Walker, was cited for three counts of harboring a non-domestic animal. It is illegal in Omaha, which has jurisdiction over King Lake, to own non-venomous snakes that can grow to 8 feet long.

No number was listed for Walker.
