She Found A Snake In A Beer Can… Her Next Move Took A LOT Of Guts.
Littering hurts everyone, and that's why we should always clean up after ourselves. Chanda Lowe recently shared a unique story about how trash almost killed a California whipsnake near her home.
The Southern Californian woman was out hiking when she encountered a cruel sight: a striped racer was caught in a beer can that someone had left on the ground. The snake was struggling to stay alive.
Snakes aren't the most approachable animals out there, and Lowe admitted that she almost left it to die. In the end, she decided to treat it as she would any other living creature.
"The hole in the side of the can was too small for the snake to get its entire body through, leaving it stuck in the can," Lowe wrote online.
"The snake was able to get its head out through the pop-top, but its body remained trapped in the can."
She brought the snake home so that she could cut the can and treat its wounds with an antibiotic ointment. During its recovery, she let her son's science teacher keep it in the classroom to teach the students about the real effects of trash.
