A terrifying ball of reptiles left shoppers at an Arkansas Wal-Mart horrified over the weekend, police say.
“After we got one of our officers who is apparently some sort of snake whisperer, we learned that they are non-venomous garden snakes,” Paragould Detective Jack Hailey told KAIT.
Hailey told the station it appears that someone had collected up to 40 of the serpents and dumped them in a pile by a truck on Sunday night.
“They were collecting them for this reason, and I don’t think that was the best thing to do at all,” he said. “It could cause a panic with people trying to get away.”
Thankfully, no one was injured, and according to the incident report, no criminal offenses will be filed. However, if a suspect is caught doing a similar act anytime soon, they could be charged. See AOL for more.
