Snakes In A Car - for real 20 of 'em!

ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) -- It was either a prank or the work of Mother Nature -- either way, Sherry Hart got a slithery surprise in her car.
Sherry Hart found a pair of garter snakes in the back seat of her car on a recent shopping trip to the grocery store, then found more under a floor mat.
''This lady was freaking out next to her car,'' says Will Brinkerhoff, 17, an employee at the North Coast Fred Meyer.
Eventually more than 20 of the harmless snakes were found inside the car, some pencil-thin and one the diameter of a quarter and 3 feet long.
Brinkerhoff, another employee and several customers helped clean out the car.
One man dumped out his groceries and gave Hart the plastic carrying bags she could fill them with snakes.
When Warrenton police Officer Jim Gaebel arrived he guessed that one snake must have gotten into the car and had babies. Gaebel later told Hart that in all his years in police work, this was his first snake call.
But Hart believes it was a prank.
''Who did it? We don't know,'' she said. But she believes her car was chosen because a window stuck in the open position made it an easy target in the big parking lot.

Wait till that movie finally opens .... we'll probably see a lot more stories like this.

Anyone have some good snake encounters to report?

Years ago, one did too good a job of hiding in the grass while I was mowing the lawn with my Snake-O-Matic™ lawnmower.

This looks like a job for Samuel L. Jackson!
