Typically when I'm walking, I look down a lot - in case someone dropped a $100 bill or something.  That habit would save me if someone had dropped a snake or 40 as they did in a Paragould, Arkansas Wal Mart parking lot.

The Snakes are Barely Visible Near the Left Front Tire of This Vehicle

No one was injured according to local police, who told KAIT the act of dumping snakes in a crowded parking lot could be dangerous. (ya think?)


Police added criminal charges may be possible if they are able to find the snake leaver - at the minimum it's disorderly conduct; causing alarm in a public place. A local 'snake charmer' declared all the reptiles to be non-venomous garden variety snakes.

But still... snakes in a parking lot?  Watch where you step.
