WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A snake that was on the loose in front of the Cape Fear Serpentarium Tuesday got sassy as police and sheriff's deputies worked to wrangle it.
WECT's Colin Hackman caught the incident on camera, and eventually, authorities managed to get it inside of a box, but not before the snake lunged a couple of times.
A sergeant with the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office says the snake is a corn snake, and isn’t poisonous.
Workers at the serpentarium took it in, but the snake was not an escapee from there.
No injuries have been reported.
