Reverend Irene Monroe started what she thought would be a relaxing Sunday morning with a cup of coffee that she wanted to enjoy on her porch but instead she came face to face with a 4-foot-long boa constrictor.

I saw this story/video very early yesterday. Interesting story and the lady was quite funny herself. I can imagine how scary this was. At least someone is helping the snake find it's owner or a home. It was a good story/post!

What a shock it must have been when it reared up and hissed at her, especially not knowing if it was venomous.
Despite her calling, I'm sure next time the Reverend will opt for a feather boa instead. :)

I would have screamed too! I imagine it escaped or was set free by some irresponsible pet owner.
