WENATCHEE, WASH. - A nest of snakes was discovered in a Washington state sewer pipe when a contractor ran a video camera down the line.

City Engineer Gary Owen told The Wenatchee World he thought there were a half-dozen snakes or more.

It's hard to tell from the video, but Owen thinks they were bull snakes, possibly pets someone flushed down a toilet.

The snakes likely would have tried to exit the sewer through toilets – eventually.

It was only a matter of time before someone got an unwanted surprise in a downtown bathroom,” the Wenatchee newspaper wrote, citing Owen as the source.

However, Owen says the snakes have now been sealed off and entombed when a new liner was put in the sewer pipe.

The snakes were spotted May 15 in a recessed area of the pipe about 150 feet from a manhole.

Owen says there was no way they could have been rescued.
