And there's video.

Posted on

Snake handler Trish Predergast, who was tasked with removing the tennis ball, told BuzzFeed News she had never had to remove something so large from a live snake.

"I have removed golf balls, that kind of thing," Trish, who has been snake handler for 15 years, said.

"I was a veterinary nurse and I was asked to hold a snake about 15 years ago," she said. "It just went from there."

Trish said it was a success, and that earlier today the snake ate for the first time since the incident. The snake will be released into the wild next week, but in the meantime, check out the crazy footage of the whole operation.
