    Sonic workers flee from large snake found behind fryer

    https://abcnews.go.com/Weird/wireSto...fryer-85050864

    Workers cooking burgers and tater tots in a Sonic fast-food kitchen fled after discovering an intruder hiding behind the deep fryer.

    Brunswick police Lt. Matthew Wilson found employees of the Sonic drive-in huddled in the parking lot when he arrived to investigate last Saturday. On the phone they had described the culprit as brown with diamonds on its back.

    ?When I saw it, I could tell it was just a ball python and not a rattlesnake,? Wilson told The Brunswick News.

    He not only removed the large, non-venomous snake, but also found it a new home with a friend who has a large terrarium and a fondness for snakes.

    Wilson says the python likely slipped into the Sonic's kitchen on May 21 through an open back door, finding a cozy spot for its cold-blooded body behind the hot fryer.

    Police don't know where the snake came from, though Wilson says it had likely been a pet that got turned loose by its owner.

    Eammon Leonard agreed. He's an invasive species biologist with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Leonard said snakes are often an impulse buy and owners find themselves having second thoughts as their scaly pets grow larger.

    ?It could be somebody just didn?t think through the consequences of a large snake as a pet,? Leonard said. ?Some people have regrets later on and just release things. It is definitely irresponsible.?

    I read about it on my local scanner page.
    I saw a large snake fall out of a tree last year. It would've been terrifying if someone had been standing under the tree when the snake fell.

    A friend of mine was watching a hawk fly over her yard when it dropped a snake it had in its beak. It landed just a few feet from her. All you have to do is look at the sky and kind of squint and she takes cover... I can understand.

    I love pythons. They're actually very friendly. I'm glad that they didn't hurt him and that he's found a new home.

    The only thing worse than a generic "snake" is a "friendly snake." Seriously, they're just sizing you up for their next meal. /s

    I don't go out of my way to kill them, but yeah my days of playing with snakes are long gone, and if one shows up uninvited, I'm not a happy person.

    I have never played with snakes and never will. I don't kill them unless they are like a rattlesnake on my property, but I am not friends with them.

    Same. Eve if it's non-venomous, I still don't want to get bit. No thank you.
