Hotel guests leave items behind all the time when they check out. I know I’ve had my fair share including iPhone chargers and socks, but one guest checked out at the Rodeway Inn and Suites in Asheville, NC left something else behind in his hotel bed.
After hotel guest Neil Miller checked out, the maid cleaning his room was in for a big surprise, as she found a 5-foot boa constrictor snake in the bed!
Per ABC News,
A “terrified” pet owner was relieved to discover that an animal shelter had recovered his 5-foot-long boa constrictor after the man left it in a North Carolina hotel room, where police say a startled housekeeper found it in a bed.
“I set him down for two minutes and forgot about him, walked out,” Neil Miller told ABC affiliate WLOS-TV.
Hotel staff at the Rodeway Inn and Suites in Asheville, North Carolina, called the Buncombe County Animal Shelter for help Monday.
The housekeeper discovered the snake nestled partly beneath the sheet and atop the comforter, police said.
Fortunately, the snake was tame and didn’t attack the room attendant cleaning the room, however I couldn’t imagine if a new guest happened to check-in and discovered a boa constrictor in their bed!
We never know what calls for service we’ll get. Today it was a 5’ boa constrictor in a hotel bed! Is he yours? Claim at BC Animal Shelter! pic.twitter.com/C0iv4o0879
