A snake was spotted and apprehended on a recent Ravn Alaska commuter flight to Anchorage, Alaska. The non-venomous, five-foot reptile was reportedly checked as a pet by a passenger who left it on a previous flight and was spotted under a duffel bag by a boy sitting near the back of the plane. Once crew members were notified of the snake’s presence, they grabbed it, dropped it into a plastic bag and stowed it in an overhead bin for the rest of the flight.

Thankfully, it is illegal to own a pet snake in Dallas. I think that might apply state-wide, but at least in Dallas, no Cuddles the Boa allowed.
