(WVNS) – A Virginia woman found a snake slithering into her car Monday in Fauquier County.
Lora Goff was behind the wheel when she noticed the garden snake coming through an air vent and wrapping around her cellphone charging cable.
“It was about two, two-and-a-half feet long,” Goff said.
Goff said when animal control arrived and tried to remove the snake, it retreated, hiding out somewhere in the car. Fauquier Now was there as animal control responded and captured what happened.
“We tried all sorts of things,” Goff said. “Running the air conditioning really cold, running it hot. Everybody was telling me different things to do.”
Eventually, Goff gave up and drove home with the snake’s whereabouts unknown. She said it was “nerve-racking.”
“I just kept moving my feet on the floorboard to scare it,” said Goff.
To deal with her unwelcome friend, Goff put glue traps under her seats and found the snake stuck on one soon after.
“I just wanted to make sure the snake was out of my car and that was the only thing I could think of to do was put the glue strip down,” she said. “I wanted to make sure I had proof it was gone.”
