A Clearwater, FL, man called police Saturday to ask for help removing a five-foot boa constrictor from his new couch.
In a Facebook post, officers said the man bought the couch days earlier, adding that he believed the snake was hiding in the couch since it was moved inside his home.
Officers temporarily removed the couch from the home and found the snake burrowed deep inside it. They then carefully extracted the snake from its hiding place, WFLA reports.
It was taken to a pet store, and the couch was returned to the man's home.
