In a suburban neighbourhood, a colossal snake was discovered making its way across a residential roof after managing to escape from its enclosure.
Witnesses described the creature as a “giant snake,” although snake catchers insisted that such a description was an understatement.
Photographs taken at the scene this week capture the sight of a massive yellow snake coiled atop a house in Chetek, Wisconsin, USA.
A brave individual can be seen ascending a ladder to provide assistance, while another image showcases the snake catcher holding the reptile, which appears even larger in size than its captor.
Authorities from the Barron County Sheriff’s Department responded to reports of the serpent’s presence after it made its daring escape, undoubtedly leaving the neighbours in a state of terror.
Described as “the stuff of nightmares,” officials remarked that the snake “belongs in the jungle.”
A spokesperson commented, “Deputies were called to a residence in Chetek after reports of a gigantic snake that had escaped from its enclosure and found its way onto the roof. We believe that calling it ‘giant’ was an understatement…
“Upon arrival, deputies utilized various tools to safely retrieve and secure this enormous serpent. While we refrain from judging people’s choice of pets, we are fairly certain that most residents of NW Wisconsin do not expect encounters with these jungle behemoths.
“Well done to the team for going above and beyond to prevent this non-native Severus Snake from roaming the streets.”
