Beech Grove Python Found After Extensive Search

Last updated on Sunday, May 27, 2018

(BEECH GROVE) - After an extensive search, the Beech Grove python named Vine has been found.

The owner, Benny Tarplee, found Vine under his shed after discovering a path from the bushes.

Just before 1:15 p.m. Saturday, he got his neighbors together to lift the shed. Around 4 neighbors helped Tarplee rescue Vine from underneath the shed.


During the search, Vine became a local legend, spawning a Twitter account and a petition to change the mascot of Beech Grove schools to the pythons.

Tarplee said Vine is "in good shape, but not great shape."
