Erep­tile dys­func­tion as snake gets stuck in ear

CityPress - - News -

A woman from Port­land, Ore­gon, took to so­cial me­dia show­ing how her pet snake got trapped in her ear gauge.

Ashley Glawe told her Face­book fol­low­ers that the snake, a ball python named Bart, had made a dash for the hole in her ear and, be­fore she could stop him, he was wedged in tight.

She ended up in the emer­gency room with Bart stuck in her ear. Her photos went vi­ral, with 32 000 shares within hours of her post­ing with a num­ber of com­men­ta­tors ques­tion­ing her story.

One wrote: “I do not buy for a sec­ond that this snake man­aged to some­how sneak through there un­de­tected. Ridicu­lous selfie ef­fort gone wrong?”

How­ever, Glawe in­sists the in­ci­dent was all the snake’s own do­ing, and her friend cor­rob­o­rated her story.

A doc­tor at Port­land Ad­ven­tist Hospi­tal cut her ear­lobe to widen the hole slightly for Bart to be re­moved from his owner’s ear with the help of some Vase­line and a string.
