Snakes are developing legs.
And this is an area that has a history of problems with mutant wildlife
Update: Apparently this story is NOT TRUE. The snake did NOT have legs. It had fingers from a bowl of Wendy's chili.
No, seriously, it's worse than that. According to this story (which requires registration) the "legs" were NOT legs. The story states that, after the original story was published, "a few readers savvy about snakes notified the newspaper Friday morning that those legs were more than likely the reptile's sex organs, which were expelled from the body when it was tossed alive onto a pie of burning tumbleweeds."
That had to hurt.
