SAN DIEGO (WITI) – You’ve heard of snakes on a plane — but could you imagine finding one crawling out of the toilet at work?! YIKES!
Two San Diego women were completely shocked when they found a five-foot boa constrictor coming out of the toilet in their office!
Stephanie Lacsa and Holly Wells, co-founders of Vertical PR + Marketing, noticed the water in the toilet was higher than usual. Lacsa says she grabbed a toilet plunger — and that’s when she noticed something coming out of the toilet!
Lacsa and Wells saw a flickering tongue — and the women ran out of the bathroom screaming. Lacsa had taped the bathroom door shut!
San Diego County Department of Animal Services officials arrived and entered the bathroom. The snake had completely exited the toilet and was coiled behind it.
The public relations company is located at the Old San Diego City Hall, which was built in 1886. Lacsa and Wells said they had come accustomed to old pipes and stubborn plumbing, but they were not prepared for this!
Animal control officers captured the snake and took it to a veterinarian.
