I don't get why this woman won't release her name. Crazy cat lady might be lame, but crazy snake lady is just kind of awesome.

A 45-year-old woman near Cleveland called 911 last week when her five-and-a-half-foot boa constrictor wrapped itself around her head. The snake had latched onto her nose and wouldn't let go.

It was one of two boa constrictors she rescued the day before. She told 911 that she also has nine other snakes that are all ball pythons. She was in quite a bit of pain when she called, and said there was blood everywhere.

The 911 audio is pretty great. The operator kind of sounds like she thinks it's a joke at first. When firefighters got there, the snake was still latched on.

Unfortunately they had to use a pocketknife to kill the snake before it would let go. The woman was treated at a nearby hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
