Officers remove snake found in Walker clinic
WALKER – A snake found its way into a clinic in Walker on Friday afternoon.
Officers of the Walker Police Department were able to get a snake out of the North Oaks Walk-in Clinic after about 10 minutes.
The department said the snake caused a scene in the clinic until it was escorted out. The snake is still alive following the incident and no one was injured, the department says.
The Walker Police Department says the snake was believed to be a rat snake.
"Although we take a dim view of lawlessness, we had no choice but to release the unwanted visitor on his own recognizance after realizing that our handcuffs would not securely restrain the suspect," John Sharp of the Walker Police Department said.
