EL PASO, Texas (CIRCA via KGBT) — Police said a big snake was discovered on the mailbox of a home in Overland Park, Kansas, on Friday.

The mail carrier called animal control for help after seeing it wrapped around a resident's mailbox.

Animal control identified it as a red-tailed boa.

“I assumed it was a wild snake, a black snake or something like that,” said Amy Nash, the responding animal control officer. “It was very, very large, much larger than I knew I could handle on my own, so I called my supervisor to come and help me get it down.”
