KRUGERVILLE, Texas - A Walmart cart attendant got the surprise of the evening when a large rat snake wrapped itself into a coil in a group of shopping carts in Krugerville, Texas, Saturday evening.

The attendant’s screams drew a police officer patrolling the area, who called a local “snake charmer” who helped relocate the snake. 

A Facebook post by the Northeast Police Department noted that John Heckaman – who wrangled the snake -- was “only” bitten once during the catch-and-release.
