Trending Snakes on a Plane? How About in Your Car? Published 2 years ago on Mar 18, 2017 By Alyson Chadwick A Florida woman nearly wrecked her car when a snake slithered through her air conditioning vent in her car. Earlier this month, Monica Dorsett was stuck in traffic in Venice, Florida when it happened. These are photos that Dorsett’s daughter, Kristina, took and shared on Twitter after the ordeal was over. https://twitter.com/Krissy_Lyn/status/840297701602426880?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Dorsett said she had to cross two lanes of traffic and then made it to a parking lot where she jumped out of the car. When she closed the door, the snake was cut in half but that did not kill it. Her husband had to do that for her. “I looked and I didn’t see anybody in [the passenger side] mirror so I did a right turn over two lanes into a parking lot, slammed it in reverse, undid my belt and rolled out of the car as fast as I could,” Dorsett said. The red rat snake is not dangerous. According to the Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC), the red rat snake can be scary, especially when it appears out of nowhere like when you are driving, it is not dangerous. The snakes generally eat small rodents, insects, birds and lizards. They kill their prey through constriction. They are not venomous and have no fangs. You can find these creatures in Florida and the south and west United States. Isa Foltin/Getty Images Dorsett said that she is an animal lover and would not have hurt the snake on purpose. Her husband called killing the snake “euthanasia” as it was gravely injured when the door was shut on it. She said, “I’m an animal lover and I would have never killed it on purpose.” While it unusual, snakes are native to most of the planet and this happens all over the world. People who are concerned can take steps to keep them out of vehicles. UP NEXT Bill Maher on Violence at Middlebury...
