‘I have a boa constrictor stuck to my face’: Paramedic cuts off snake’s head with pocket knife to save owner

Maybe she’s not a Trump fan. He warned about rescuing snakes.

On Thursday an unidentified woman called 911 to report that a boa constrictor, one of the largest snakes in the world, was attacking her and biting her nose, WAFB reported.

“I have a boa constrictor stuck to my face,” the frightened woman told the dispatcher.

“Ma’am, you have a what?” the confused dispatcher responded.

“There’s blood everywhere,” the woman said.

“I’m just scared,” she said. “ … Oh God, hurry, please!”

When first responders arrived at the scene they found the woman lying on her driveway with the snake wrapped around her body.

The snake would not let go and was biting the woman’s face.

One of the paramedics chopped the snake’s head off with a pocket knife to save her life.

“I’m just really pleased with the paramedics response and you know the thought, to think that quick to take out a pocket knife. obviously he had to destroy the snake but he had no other choice,” Sheffield Lake Mayor Dennis Bring said, according to WAFB.

The woman has rescued other snakes, and currently has two boa constrictors and nine ball pythons in her home.

“I would imagine the bite was very painful so she’s gonna have to put up with that while too. And now she’s gonna have to make a decision on whether she continues to do this. But, we’ll see,” Mayor Bring said.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, President Trump read the lyrics to Al Wilson’s “The Snake” several times and likened it to the illegal immigration crisis, much to the dismay of the pundits on CNN.

The story is about a woman who takes a snake in to rescue it and nurse it to health only to be attacked by it. When the woman asks the snake why he did it, the snake responds “you knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in.”

Perhaps this woman should have listened.
