A 31 year old woman was participating in a Madison, WI book club at the home of another member.
She decided to take a four foot long ball python out of it’s terrarium despite never having handled a snake before.
The 12 year old snake, named Annie, decided to latch onto the woman’s face – right cheek to be specific – and would not let go until the owner was able to remove it.
Police report that the woman had no reason to think she was putting herself in danger, other than the fact that she was picking up a giant snake that eats meat, and had permission from the owner to do so. She was treated and released by doctors with no lasting scars or injuries.
…other than the image of that huge snake mouth lunging at her head…..
