Free Second-Hand Sofa Contained Slithering Surprise
The best things in life aren't always free. A Michigan woman found that picking up a free sofa off the street wasn't such a good idea after a large snake came slithering out of it.
Holly Wright said she'd had the sofa in her bedroom for a couple of months before the four foot long snake showed itself. Wright was able to capture the snake on a coat hanger because it was so lethargic. Unfortunately, the snake died before she could get it to a veterinarian.
There is some question as to the exact type of snake it was, but it is one person said it looked like a red tail boa constrictor. If that's true, the tropical snake likely died of medical issues related to long term exposure to temperatures colder than it could tolerate.
