Shopper finds snake in his bag after shopping at WC Walmart

One Walmart shopper got a slithery surprise when a snake popped out of his shopping bag after leaving the store in Mohegan Lake on Friday night.

Greg Kane says he found the snake when he set the bag down on his counter at home. He says he killed the snake and took the remains back to Walmart to try and sort out where the snake came from. He even called police in to try and determine where the snake came from.

The snake was identified as a baby boa constrictor and while not poisonous can carry harmful bacteria in its mouth, according to a veterinarian.

Kane says he believes that this was a prank and that someone put the snake near all the shopping bags.
