North Carolina man uses bare hands to pull snake from toilet


Sept. 26 (UPI) — A North Carolina man answered a neighbor’s call for help and ended up using his bare hands to pull a 6-foot snake out of the elderly man’s toilet.

Mike Greene of Lattimore said his neighbor, an 88-year-old man, contacted him for help after finding a snake inside his home for the fourth time in the past six years.

“He lives alone, he’s in very good health, very good shape, but he don’t do snakes,” Greene told WCNC-TV.

Greene’s neighbor filmed as he plunged his hands into the toilet and grabbed the danger noodle by the tail.

The video, posted to Facebook, shows him pulling what turns out to be a 6-foot serpent out of the commode.

“Well look how big he is Mike. Golly, I told you he was big,” the elderly man can be heard saying in the video.

Greene said the snake was the largest one he has removed from his neighbor’s house so far. He said the snake was not dangerous and he released it into a nearby field.
