There was a real snake on a plane situation on Sunday on a Ravn Alaska flight from Aniak to Anchorage. A man had left his pet snake behind on the plane and then the plane took flight again with the snake on board.
There were only seven passengers on the flight when the pilot came on and said “Guys, we have some loose snake on the plane, but we don’t know where it is.”
The group set out to look for the plane and a young boy found him sleeping by a duffel bag. A stewardess put the snake into a garbage can and then into the overhead compartment for the remainder of the plane.
The man who left the five-foot snake behind did not register it to fly in the cabin.
