Police attempted to get this snake out of a car after woman called 'hysterically' for help

On June 18, the Eureka Police Department shared a photo of the snake hidden next to a floor mat.

The reptile had apparently found its way into the driver’s compartment when the woman discovered it while driving on Interstate 44, authorities said.

Unfortunately, law enforcement said Eureka Police were unable to get the snake out and towed the car at the driver’s request.

The good news is that the

serpent eventually made its

way out of the car on its own.

“A local citizen (Out Back Ed) helped to relocate the snake to a more accepting environment. Driver has recomposed herself and back on her journey,” the police department wrote.

The post has since gone viral, receiving over 500 reactions

and more than 200 comments.

“If this had been me in my car they’d be calling the ambulance and wrecker,” one person wrote
