Boa constrictor pulled from paneling of car

Posted: Updated:
COCONUT CREEK, FL -

A car dealership in south Florida got an interesting phone call this week. A woman's pet boa constrictor got stuck in her car's paneling.

Vista BMW in Coconut Creek gets lots of service calls, but workers there say this one Monday morning was by far the strangest.

The woman's pet boa had gotten into the side of her Mini Cooper. She said she normally keeps the reptile in a travel bag, but somehow, it got out.

Chris Braun, who works at the dealership, rescued the animal even though he has a fear of snakes.

The owner of the snake was embarrassed to speak on camera. But she and her boa have been happily reunited.
