Kansas Postal Worker Finds Giant Boa Constrictor Wrapped Around Mailbox

Overland Park Police

A postal worker in Kansas found an unusual obstruction when trying to deliver mail to a home on Friday: a massive snake.

A red-tailed boa constrictor, to be precise. And it had it's body wrapped tightly around the home's mailbox.

Sorry folks, no letters for you today!

The postal worker did, however, give animal control a call. They came and removed the snake without much problem.

Police said they believe the snake is someone's escaped pet.
