GROVELAND, Fla. (AP) — After their clothes dryer began blowing out a lot of lint, a Florida family called a repairman who discovered a dead snake rather than a jammed motor.

“I was like, ‘Oh, that’s what caused the motor to blow,’” Alyson Pring told Orlando television station WKMG.

Repairman Darrell Cobble stopped by to take a look at what was causing the problem, the station reports.

“He just stands up, and he walks off. He’s like, ‘There’s a dead snake in there,’” Pring said.

Cobble told the station that while it’s not common, snakes can find their way into dryers. He said there is usually a grate that prevents snakes and other animals from entering the dryer. But Pring’s central Florida home did not have one.

They’ll be keeping an eye out now, Alyson Pring said.

“Could’ve been much worse, but I’m glad it was a dead and done, fix it up and ready to go,” she said.
