PORTLAND, Ore. (KGW) – A Portland, Oregon woman and her pet snake are okay after a frightening ordeal.

“It’s unbelievable to me,” says Ashley Glawe.

Glawe was trying to take selfies with her ball python, Bart, when he did something he has never done before. He slithered into the small hole in Glawe’s earlobe.

“I kind of went into shock,” she says. “I started shaking.”

Glawe called for help. Firefighters rushed over to the house, but they could not help her. Glawe went to the emergency room. Staff numbed her ear and got to work.

“I guess they used some string and ran it between my ear and the snake and stretched my ear out more and pulled him back through.”

Glawe’s story has gone viral.

“People have contacted me from other countries,” she said. “People telling me it’s gone across the UK.”

Glawe will never forget the adventure with Bart that landed her international attention.

“Now looking back I can laugh at it,” she said.
