JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A rattlesnake in Jacksonville ended up in the back of a police car.
The snake was being carried by a homeless man walking around Jacksonville Beach Monday morning. The snake was 6 to 8 feet long.
When police stopped the man, they told him to throw the reptile into the back of their car for safety.
A Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer pulled it from the patrol car's back seat, and the snake was relocated to a wooded area.
Thankfully, no injuries were reported.
