Snake eats golf balls — surgery goes just fine

A gray rat snake was found in a chicken coop in north Georgia. The snake had two large round objects in its stomach, which, from the fact that it was in a chicken coop, you’d think would be chicken eggs. The snake apparently thought so, too, but they were golf balls.

Now here’s the really weird part: the chicken owner took the snake to get help for its problem! A team of veterinarians at the Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island performed surgery and removed the golf balls from the snake. The reptile is recovering, and will be returned to the wild when it is deemed healthy. No doubt it will head straight to the nearest chicken coop when that happens.

Anyone who thinks nature is perfect ain’t spent enough time outdoors.
