Police in Louisiana said an officer responded to an “uncommon call” to relocate a snake found lurking in a resident’s bathroom.
The Town of Livingston Police Department said in a Facebook post that the department received an “uncommon call” on Tuesday reporting “a snake in the bathroom of a residence.”
The responding officer had some snake expertise, the post said.
“Livingston Police do not usually remove snakes but the officer instantly recognized this to be a speckled kingsnake,” the department said.
Speckled kingsnakes are non-venomous constrictors that prey on rodents and other snakes, including venomous species.
“The snake was captured and safely relocated,” police wrote.
