A HUSBAND living in Santa Pola was happily having a Sunday morning lie-in when his wife screamed out that there was a snake in their living room.
Immediately, Jeff McDonald thought it was some crafty scheme by his wife Sarah to get him out of his bed so he just stayed where he was. When she shouted again, he took the situation a little more seriously and shot out of bed and rushed into the sitting room to be confronted by a five-foot long, one inch wide red and white snake about to sneak under a cupboard.
As Jeff told the RTN: “I’d never seen a snake that big before and I immediately called the police. When they arrived, not even they would touch it. Eventually I managed to entice it into a box and they took it away.”
He continued: “Many of my friends on social media were waiting for the punchline to the joke when they read my story but when I confirmed it wasn’t they sent me a few pictures they’d researched from the internet. It looks like the snake was a harmless Honduran Milk Snake.”
