Snake Found on Plane, Yes Really!

A snake has been found on a flight to Anchorage, Alaska. It was left on a commuter flight after a passenger had left the animal, which was listed as a pet, in the cabin on a previous flight. Passengers were first made aware of it when the pilot announced: “Guys, we have some loose snake on the plane, but we don’t know where it is.” The pale yellow five foot snake wasn’t venomous and was first spotted by a boy who was climbing his seat.

When he saw it, the snake was asleep and partially covered by a duffel bag near the back of the plane. According to his mother, Anna McConnaughy, there wasn’t much of a panic on board. She explained a pilot came back to lead a short discussion with a flight attendant on how to capture it. Staff then grabbed the snake by the belly and dropped it into a plastic trash bag. It spent the rest of the flight in an overhead storage bin, and the plane reached Anchorage on schedule.
