“Squad 1 and car 1 responded to a report of a pet snake stuck in a wall this morning. Upon arrival, crews found Nagini (a 6ft Boa) had been stuck in the side panel of a kitchen cabinet for approximately 12 hours after escaping her enclosure. FFs Lamb and Blake were able to disassemble the cabinet so the owner could get the snake. No damage was done to the property, and Nagini was returned safely to her enclosure,” wrote the City of Herrin Fire Department while sharing a few pics on Facebook.
They also clarified in the comments section that the enclosure looks smaller in the picture than it actually is in reality. “Clarification: the picture of the enclosure is from the side; it is much larger than it looks. Also, the owner had approx. 15lbs of weight on the top, and the snake pushed it off. Have taken extra measures now.”
