A postal worker in Kansas found an unusual obstruction when trying to deliver mail to a home on Friday: a massive snake.
A red-tailed boa constrictor, to be precise. And it had it's body wrapped tightly around the home's mailbox.
Sorry folks, no letters for you today!
A Ball Python was found my a mailman and called Animal Control. The poor resident did not receive their mail today (obviously). The @OPPD_PIO is trying to talk the Animal Control Officers to put the snake under the @OPPD_Chief desk, but they won't. pic.twitter.com/YqahoO2pVn

The postal worker did, however, give animal control a call. They came and removed the snake without much problem.
Police said they believe the snake is someone's escaped pet.
