RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – A used chair recently bought by a Richmond couple contained an unwelcome surprise – a boa constrictor.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the couple were watching television early Wednesday morning when they saw the snake slithering around their living room. The startled couple called police.
Police say the snake apparently was in a chair that the couple bought last week from friends who have snakes.
Police removed the snake from the house and returned it to its owners.
