Woman finds snake in couch brought home from curb

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -  A woman who brought home a secondhand couch left on the curb in western Michigan says she ended up finding a boa constrictor apparently living under the cushions.

Holly Wright tells WZZM-TV that the couch had been in her Grand Rapids bedroom for about two months before the "very lethargic" snake emerged over the weekend. She says it died before she could get care for the snake.

Wright says she isn't sure where the snake came from, but it may have been there the whole time.

She says she thought the couch looked OK when she found it with a sign indicating that it was free for the taking. She says she took off the cushions and cleaned it, but didn't initially see the snake.
