ROSE HILL, Kan. (WTHR) — A Kansas man searching for his keys in his couch instead found a scaly intruder.

Justin Bailey was reaching between the cushions when he found a 6-foot boa constrictor curled up in between. Besides having a snake in his couch, there was another issue: he doesn't own a snake.

"I reach into the right side, and I feel something," Bailey said. And I'm like, 'That doesn't feel right.'"

Terrified, Bailey called 911.

Firefighters got the snake out, but Bailey doesn't know how it ever got in.

"I would very much like to know the story of how their snake got into my couch," Bailey said. The snake is now being kept at a local pet store.
