Walmart shoppers never expected to find dozens of snakes in the parking lot of an Arkansas Walmart.
According to KAIT, around 40 snakes were found in the parking lot.
The snakes were non-venomous, and appeared to have been collected and dumped in the parking lot by an unknown individual, said police detective Jack Hailey.
“They were either herding the snakes when they were frog gigging or something,” Hailey said. “Either way, they were collecting them for this reason and I don’t think that was the best thing to do at all. Especially, those out there with a phobia.”
“At the minimum, you could look at disorderly conduct of causing alarm to a public place, but if you look at the bigger picture, is someone was trying to get away from them and got hurt in any sort of way, those charges could easily increase,” Hailey told KAIT.
“If you like to play with snakes, keep them in their natural habitats where they belong,” Hailey told KAIT. “It is not anything funny. It is not cute. It is going to get somebody hurt and could potentially get someone seriously hurt.”
That must have been a very strange call for police officers to respond to.
You can rest assured that the apocalypse isn’t coming yet, but if it does, you can expect it to take place in the parking lot of a Walmart.
