A resident of Merkel, Texas, found an unwelcome guest in his bathroom on August 15 after a snake was discovered in his toilet bowl.
Gus West posted footage of his attempt to remove the snake from the toilet using a golf club on Facebook.
“Had a little visitor at the house today,” he said in a post alongside the video.
Speaking to Storyful, West added that the snake survived the ordeal.
“I live in the country so I just took the snake and put it in the backyard because they’re good at keeping rats away,” he said. Credit: Gus West via Storyful
