TX Police Remove 3-Foot Snake from Bathtub




Police in Texas have safely removed a 3-foot-long snake that a woman discovered in her bathtub.

Snake in the Bathtub

Nobody was hurt in the incident before dawn Tuesday.

Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton says a woman called police to say her adult daughter found a snake in her bathtub and needed help removing it. The daughter had called her mom after finding the reptile.

It was a rat snake, which isn't venomous.

Authorities aren't sure how or why the animal ended up coiled in the tub. Swanton says it's possible it was flooded from its habitat during recent storms, ended up in a drain line and wiggled its way up into the tub.

Police removed the reptile and released it into some nearby woods.
