Being a police officer brings its fair share of interesting situations.

Aside from crime and traffic related incidents, officers are occasionally called to handle situations involving animals – like duck and cat rescues.

What’s not quite as common? Calls for removing a huge snake from a resident’s yard.

That was exactly the task for an officer in Westminster on Thursday.

In a Facebook post, Westminster Police joked that the ‘sssuspect’ was taken into custody and relocated to a nearby open space.

Good work, officer!
