Evanston Officer Pedro Carrasco and Animal Control Warden Jason Pound responded to a call for help and took the snake to the Chicago Exotics Animal Hospital where it was examined by a vet.
Apparantly the animal went through a wash cycle, but survived, according to the vet who treated it.
“We have never had a snake come in that was found in a washing machine,” she said. “It looked pretty good. Was able to do an exam on it.”
The snake was reunited with its 12-year-old owner who lived nearby and had lost the animal three days earlier.
