Homeowner Gets Big Surprise

A homeowner in Tyler found a big surprise Sunday morning inside her garage... a 10 ft. snake.

The snake is boa constrictor.  The owner of the home called police who passed the job of collecting the snake off to the areas constable. Presinct  2 Constable Frank Creath says they're not exactly sure how the snake got into the garage, but they're pretty sure where it came from.

"It would almost have to be a pet snake, this snake is common to Central and South America so the probability of it crawling to Tyler is pretty slim."

Authorities say they're not quite sure what they are going to do with the snake, they're hoping the owner will come forward and claim it.
