Eastern Ratsnake #16-2319

On October 19, an Eastern Ratsnake was rescued on a property in King and Queen County, where the homeowner observed the snake with a bulge in its abdomen in mid-September and again in mid-October. The homeowner thought the bulge hadn’t moved and later noticed that a golf ball she placed in the chicken coop was missing (people will sometimes place golf balls or wooden eggs in coops to encourage chickens to lay eggs in a particular place). The rescuers captured the snake and brought it to a local animal hospital for an assessment.
