Snakes can slither in and out of just about anything, but a woman’s pierced earlobe should not be one them.

Why anyone would allow a pet snake to wriggle through a stretched-out ear piercing is something perhaps only Ashley Glawe can explain. The Oregon woman took herself to the emergency room when she couldn’t get her ball python, named Bart, out of her earlobe. Ashley claims she was holding the snake near her ear when it decided to crawl in. She explains, “I tried to get him out myself and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to without hurting him by pulling him back against his scales.
