Local news photographer to the rescue! Man removes snake from woman’s house

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON - A mother and daughter in Houston thought they were out of luck after spotting a snake slithering around their home.  The mom is in a wheelchair and her daughter in a cast making it difficult for them to get rid of the snake on their own. 

They left the house and called animal control but were told it might be 24 hours before anyone could come out to help.  The police and fire department told them there was nothing they could do unless someone was bit.


They decided to make one more call to their local news station. A crew went out to the house and the photographer immediately put down his camera put on some gloves and went to work.  He quickly got rid of the snake which turned out not to be venomous but the mom and daughter were glad to be rid of it anyway.
