CAMBRIDGE, Massachusetts (WHDH) -- A wild sight gave one Cambridge woman big scare Sunday morning.
A snake was lurking by her house so she called in the authorities who came to remove the three-foot-long boa constrictor.
"At that moment I'm going oh my God this is something like a Steven King novel here," said Reverend Irene Monroe, found boa constrictor on her porch.
An unwelcome creature rears its head right here in the "wilds" of Cambridge!
"When it poked its head up, and it wiggled up, I lost my righteous mind. I gave out a blood curdling scream and woke up everybody," Rev. Monroe said.
A three-foot-long boa constrictor wedged itself into the track of a sliding door where it waited for Irene Monroe.
"I'm tugging this thing, thinking it's off the track," Rev. Monroe said.
