Woman plunging toilet pulls up 5 1/2-foot snake

SAN DIEGO — Officials in San Diego are trying to sort out how a 5 1/2-foot snake wound up in a toil

SAN DIEGO — Officials in San Diego are trying to sort out how a 5 1/2-foot snake wound up in a toilet at an office building.

Stephanie Lacsa told San Diego County authorities she noticed the water level in the toilet was higher than usual when she went to the second-floor restroom Tuesday. When she plunged it, a snake popped up and flicked its tongue.

She ran out, taped the door shut and called Animal Services.

The department says an animal control officer found a giant Columbian rainbow boa on the floor. The snake was shedding and slightly underweight.

It was taken to an animal care facility and bit a handler.

If the owner doesn’t show up by Friday, the snake will go to a rescue group.

How it got in the toilet remains a mystery.
