There’s a Snake in the Toilet

Paging Samuel L. Jackson. Not available? OK, better call 911.

Earlier today, North Precinct patrol officers responded to one of the stranger things the profession is sometimes be called upon to do: remove an unwanted snake from a toilet.

These bizarre circumstances unfolded in an apartment complex in the Lake City neighborhood. Officers made contact with the bewildered family who explained that their young daughter made the discovery.

Officers worked with the family and apartment complex residents to remove the snake and keep it safe until someone from the Pacific Northwest Herpetological Society could come and claim it.

If you recognize the snake as yours, please make a report by calling 206 625-5011.

It is unknown if this snake is fond of nougat.
