Bibb County Animal Enforcement Officer Rebecca Galeazzo was called to home earlier that evening regarding the 6-foot snake, nicknamed “Big Mama.”

Galeazzo was unable to find it on the first try.


Galeazzo returned to the home once the children returned to the home, where they spotted “Big Mama” under a bedside table.

The uninvited guest, who turned out to be friendly and docile, as snakes go, was released unharmed back into the wild.
