Imagine opening your front door and finding a massive boat constrictor there!

That’s what happened to a Sarasota family Friday morning. Police were called to a home in the 600 block of N. Beneva Road about the snake. Sarasota County Animal Control arrived and took possession of it.

The snake wasn’t injured and is safe.

This is the second time an area resident has had a close encounter with a snake. Earlier this month, a driver on U.S. 19 found a snake coming from the hood of his car!
