    Live boa constrictor found in bin of Goodwill donations

    What a surprise the Goodwill employee must of had when he opened up the storage box.


    Nov. 2 (UPI) -- An employee sorting through donations at a Goodwill store in Texas made an unusual discovery: a live boa constrictor snake.

    Tassy Rodgers, who works in donation processing at Goodwill Industries in Fort Worth, said the albino snake was found in a bin of donations. "I was tipping this machine, and when I brought the bin back the snake was hanging over the edge," Rodgers told KXAS-TV. "I was a little freaked out and thinking this cannot be fake; it's gotta be real."

    Goodwill assistant manager James Murphy said it was unclear whether the snake was intentionally donated to the store.

    Perhaps it was someone's pet that crawled into the donation bag before it was taken to Goodwill...

    I don't know, I'm sure that a snake of that size, they'd have to notice the bag was way too heavy when they put it into their car. But either way I hope they find the owner of the snake and get to the bottom of why and how it got into the clothing container.
