The Barron County Sheriff’s Department said the snake had escaped from the house and was on the roof.

Once deputies were at the house, they were able to get some tools and retrieve the snake with a giant rope, the sheriff’s department said.

“We won’t judge people’s choice of pets BUT…. we’re pretty sure most people live in NW Wisconsin to avoid these jungle monsters,” the sheriff’s department said.
