TRUSSVILLE — With the help of a high school teacher, crews with the Center Point Fire District saved a snake after it slithered onto a sticky mousetrap inside a home.

Battalion Chief Brad Appleton sent photos of the ordeal to The Trussville Tribune.

Appleton said on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, Engine One from Fire Station One responded to a home in Center Point after a resident told dispatchers there was a snake in the home.

Firefighters arrived to find a rat snake stuck on a mouse trap.

The snake was taken to Clay-Chalkville High School, where science teacher Ms. Sarah Brown took the lead. Brown tended to the snake’s wounds and freed it from the sticky mess.

The snake has since been released back into the wild.
