STOUGHTON, Mass. – An unsuspecting Massachusetts resident went out to their car to check fluids Saturday morning when a fire-breathing dragon was found under the hood of the car.

Just kidding, it was a boa constrictor, but same thing right?! The Stoughton Police Department made a playful post with pictures of what they called the “man-eating anaconda” to their Facebook page.

Despite never “having gone to snake charming school,” officers and an Animal Control officer responded to the scene and successfully removed the snake with no injuries reported.

The police department wrote, “they received no help from the supervisor on duty as he was hiding as far as he could from this incredibly dangerous mission.”

The Animal Control Officer took the snake into custody where it will be properly cared for.
