DENVER — The Denver Fire Department found a surprise this weekend when checking out a car with a sleeping driver: a 15-foot snake.

According to a tweet from the fire department, the snake was crawling out the driver’s side window and onto the roof.

The snake was a pet, according to the tweet, which encouraged drivers not to “drink & drive, especially with your pet snake in the car!”
