In a Facebook post that has since gone viral, the Eureka Police Department explained the situation and posted a picture of the snake.
“Eureka Police are working on removing a snake from a car on I-44,” they said in their Facebook post.
“Young lady driving was surprised by a snake working its way through the driver compartment. Called hysterically needing help. We are here to help with many problems.”
“I’m not a snake kind of guy. Good thing other officers are.”
“Look very carefully, he is coiled up under the floor mat next to the soda bottle.”
The police were unable to get this snake out of her car, so this is what they did next.
