Woman rushed to hospital after her pet python got stuck in her earlobe

A woman has found herself in a rather slippery predicament after her pet python ‘Bart’ decided to slither through her gauged earlobe.

Ashley Glawe took to her Facebook page last Monday to share the “scary” ordeal.

“By far one of my craziest life moments! Went to the emergency room because my Ball Python decided to get stuck in my gauged earlobe!” the US woman wrote alongside an image of the snake wrapped through her earlobe.


When asked how hospital staff removed the reptile, Ashley replied: “They numbed up my ear and used string to pull and stretch it out so that they could get him out without hurting him.”

The post is going viral online with more than 620 shares.
