A Walmart employee got quite the scare as they were collecting carts in the parking lot over the weekend.

Northeast Police said an officer in the area heard a loud scream from across the Walmart parking lot on Friday evening.

The cart attendant found a large rat snake intertwined between a group of shopping carts sitting in a return area.

Police received the assistance of John Heckaman "the Snake Charmer" in the relocation of the snake, and was bit once in the process.
