A Henry Street couple in North Ravenswood found snake skin in their alley and garage Wednesday, evidence that the missing Gallatin Street python had visited their home. 

Wayne and Jeanne Butler, who live on the Henry Street block adjacent to snake owner Ty Donohue's residence, made the discovery while out walking Wednesday. 

According to Jeanne Butler, her husband found a large portion of shed snake skin near the fence in the alleyway behind Ty Donohue's.  The couple also found a small piece of shed skin in their garage, indicating the snake had been in there. 

Wildlife Association officials responded to the garage to investigate the snake residue.  However, they found no evidence that the snake was still at the Butler's home.  The investigation may have led to rumors Wednesday that the snake had been found.  The snake skin remains the only evidence that the snake survived the frigid overnight temperatures this week.
