A Pet Snake Survived a Spin in a Washing Machine and Came out Smelling like Downy

(EVANSTON, Ill.) — An escaped pet snake that apparently slithered into a suburban Chicago family’s washing machine ended up smelling like fabric softener after going through the wash.

Sanela Kamencic tells WMAQ-TV she was “totally creeped out” when the snake turned up Wednesday in the washing machine in Evanston.

Police Officer Pedro Carrasco and Animal Control Warden Jason Pound brought the reptile to the Chicago Exotics Animal Hospital. Carrasco says it was “peeking its head out of the washing machine” when they found it.” Pound says it “smelled like Downy” after surviving the wash cycle.

Veterinarian Melissa Giese tells radio station WBBM the snake was “in pretty good shape” and “really feisty.”

The animal hospital says the corn snake, named Penelope, belonged to a 12-year-old boy who lives nearby. They were reunited afterward.

Yes, Jason is the latest in a long line of lethal Pounds:

First there was Grandpa Jared in the Pound Identity.

Then came father Joshua in The Pound Supremecy.

Followed by big brother Jacob in The Pound Ultimatum.

Then there was a bit of a failure with little brother Jeremiah in The Pound Legacy.

But that set us up for where we are today with just simply, Jason Pound.

I bet that snake had a headache afterwards. I wonder if his owner gave him any asp-irin.

I bet he was angry when he came out, too. I bet he threw a hissy fit.

Snakes are hardy save for cold weather if they're not evolved to deal with it. On the Webs, I recently saw a disgusting pic/story of a python that found with 500 ticks on it of various sizes. It supposedly survived after they were surgically removed.
