Officer Bruce Rozier found the animal stuck to the trap, which is normally used to trap insects and rodents.

Rozier brought the snake back to Animal Services, where three female employees worked to remove the adhesive from the snake’s body. Photos show officers gently cleaning the snake in a sink.
