Nope! Wisconsin Sheriff Deputies Respond To Giant Snake On Roof Call
This is the stuff of nightmares. That's what a social media post from a Wisconsin Sheriff's office had to say about a recent call that took place.
It happened in Chetek, Wisconsin. Chetek is located in Barron County, Wisconsin.
The Barron County Sheriff's Office says they received a call from a pet owner saying that their pet snake had escaped from their home. They believed the snake had made its way to the roof of their home.
As the Sheriff's Department said, they think the term giant was a bit of an undersell. The deputies were able to climb a ladder and use a variety of tools to retrieve the giant snake. Having some fun with it, they also called it a "nope rope," and joked that most people move to Northwest Wisconsin to escape these jungle monsters.
They applaud their deputies for going above and beyond the call of duty to retrieve this non-native snake.
Thank God they found it, that would have given someone quite the scare. I'm pretty sure the neighborhood rodents would have been taken care of.
Are snakes even legal in Wisconsin?
Certain snakes are prohibited by Wisconsin Counties to own as a pet. In Barron County, any snake that is venomous isn't allowed. Snakes that constrict and squeeze their prey to death are also prohibited.
