You never know who or what is going to show up on the video when an alert comes through from a doorbell camera. A Kansas woman prompted by her Nest device last week was startled to see that the visitor at her home was a large snake.
Makenze Bullins of the Wichita suburb of Kechi posted videos from the doorbell cam on Facebook, along with a plea for someone to PLEASE get the snake for her. Bullins said her husband was out of town at the time.
“This is NO JOKE,” she wrote, along with four SOS emojis. “I’m at work and this freaking thing keeps setting off my doorbell camera!!”
Four separate videos in Bullins’ post show the snake slithering around near her doorway in front of the camera.
She later updated the post to say that a friend had come through and relocated the snake. It was not Samuel L. Jackson, because the %$#$! snake was on the Plains not a plane.
In a story by KCWH12, the snake was identified by naturalist Todd Volkmann, who said it was a Western Rat Snake. He said they’re common in the area, are not poisonous and are known for climbing things. Volkmann said they can bite, so the best bet is not to touch them.
