After a snake found its way slithering around a building at University of Central Florida, a campus police officer with an apparent fear of serpents was scared out of his mind after being called to the scene.

Video of the incident, which occurred earlier this month and has since gone viral, shows the cautious cop asking for the snake's location inside a campus counseling center.

The officer had a few nervous and cautious attempts to wrangle the reptile and after one final panicked attempt, the nervous cop opened a door and was able to get the creature out.

As the snake left the office, everyone in the room — including the cop — was seen celebrating.
