    5-Foot Long Snake Slithers Out of Texas Toilet
    Bee County Sheriff's Office

    A South Texas man says he was cleaning the bathroom at his home when his 6-year-old son alerted him.

    A five-foot long snake was slithering out of the toilet and climbing toward a window.

    Wade Velock tells San Antonio TV station KSAT he ran so fast he knocked down his son.

    Bee County sheriff's deputies were called.

    In a Facebook post, the sheriff's office says Deputy Lindsay Scotten retrieved the snake in the bathroom vanity, then released it into the brush.

    It was identified as a non-venomous blue indigo.

    Vielock says Scotten told him she has trouble dealing with cockroaches, but is OK handling snakes.

    Bee County is about 90 miles southeast of San Antonio.
