A Nebraska woman arrived home Thursday evening to find an angry snake in her bed.
The Lancaster County Sheriff’s office shared photos of the snake after a deputy arrived at the scene to remove the slithering intruder form the woman’s sheets.
“A woman near Bluestem Lake came home to an angry snake in her bed today,” the sheriff’s office said. “Deputy Zieg saves the day.”
Lancaster Sgt. Tommy Trotter told the Lincoln Journal Star the snake appeared to be wild and was likely angry after the woman’s attempts to scare it away.
“He was hissing at her,” he said. “But in the snake’s defense, the woman owning the bed had already hit him with a shoe.”
Zoologist Mike Fritz identified the snake as a non-venomous bullsnake, a common species in Nebraska that often sneak into homes where residents leave their garage doors open.
