According to reports, the woman saw the python while working in her garage. The non-venomous snake was stuck under a car and she tried to help it.
However, ECR reported the python turned on her and wrapped itself tightly around her leg. The cops were called out to help the woman, who was calm throughout the entire incident.

At one point she even pets the snake and the police officer thought it belonged to her. "Do you want some help getting him back into his pen?" the officer asked her after they managed to uncoil the snake from her leg.
The lady reacted:
"He's not mine. He's wild."
The video gathered thousands of views and a lot of reactions. Many said they would not have been brave enough to try and help the snake.
Ashley Blackburn commented:
"Good thing I'm not a cop, the lady wouldn't have a leg left, no way I'd be any good trying to help."
Mischa Stallon added:
"OMG I screamed at the ‘Do you want help putting him in his pin' and the lass is like, 'Oh he’s not mine', off I go like the David Attenborough boss I am and release him in the bush."
Sharon Duxbury said:
"I personally would be passed out cold and not know what was going on."
