Pet snake gets stuck in woman's gauged earlobe

Firefighters were flummoxed. So, it was off the emergency room at Adventist (in case you ever get a snake stuck in your ear - this might be the hospital to consider).

"What felt like he struck at my ear, I like froze instantly".

Turns out Bart was hanging out on her shoulders when Glawe thought he started attacking her head. The firefighters tried to get the snake out of her ear, but they were unsuccessful and Glaw's daughter's grandmother took her to the hospital. She was anxious the animal would ultimately rip open the whole lobe. "And I knew I wasn't going to be able to without hurting him by pulling him back against his scales", she said.

That's when she called 911 and the fire department showed up.


She told friends online that doctors "numbed my ear, stretched it more, and lubed him up to get him through without having to cut my ear".

An Oregon woman wound up with an unwanted accessory after her pet snake chose to crawl through a piercing in her ear.

But then, they do say that reality is stranger than fiction, and in the case of Oregon, US-based Ashley Glawe this is exactly what happened.
