The dead snake was then disposed of in a bin near Sheffield Lake City Hall, Card said.

A woman in the United States has made a terrifying call to 911 after a snake she had rescued attacked her. "They're all ball pythons except for these two I rescued". The recording of her 911 call was released.

"I have a boa constrictor stuck to my face", the 45-year-old Sheffield Lake resident told the 911 operator.

"You have a boa constrictor". "You're outside with a boa constrictor stuck to your face?"

As the woman continued to yell into the phone, the dispatcher tried to calm her down by reassuring her that emergency services and paramedics were on their way. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

"Please hurry it's got a hold of my nose", the woman continues in increasingly hysterical tones. "He's around my waist and he has my nose". Towards the end of the call, sirens can be heard wailing in the background and the operator hangs up.

"It was wrapped around her neck and biting her nose and wouldn't let go", Card said. A firefighter had to cut off the snake's head with a pocket knife to rescue the woman.

The Associated Press reported that the woman was later taken to hospital for treatment.

"I would imagine the bite was very painful so she's gonna have to put up with that while too", Mayor Bring told Cleveland 19. Bing suggested, when speaking with WAFB, that the victim may be reconsidering owning snakes.

The organisation catalogued more than 471 attacks by snakes in the USA between 1995 and 2013. It said the neighbours were not aware of the incident. He urged her not to move from her position. Boa constrictors are not listed as one of the risky wild animals prohibited under the Ohio unsafe Wild Animal Act. "Obviously he had to destroy the snake but he had no other choice", Bing said.

A local reporter who visited the scene that afternoon found an empty glass cage on the pavement, and a small pool of blood on the driveway.
