Chalk this up as a victory for the local mom-and-pop hardware stores. Yeah, their prices might be a little higher and their selection is a little smaller, but at least they're not filled with deadly animals trying to kill you.

A guy was shopping at a Lowe's in Corinth, Mississippi on Saturday afternoon and opened a cabinet that was on display. A snake popped out of the cabinet and bit the guy on the head.

He was taken to the hospital, no word on how he's doing.

The snake was a black rat snake, those are between three and five feet long, they can climb up wood, and fortunately for the guy, they're not venomous. A Lowe's spokeswoman said she can't comment on what happened and they're investigating.

If you're wondering what a Black Rat Snake is, this video showcases a pretty relaxed one:
