Snake Trapped In Beer Can (6 Pics)

Imgur user Good Guy chandalowe found a snake trapped in beer can and decided to survey the situation. Unfortunately for the snake, the can was too small to crawl through, and it soon got stuck, cutting himself in the process.

The snake was injured from its ordeal, but after treatment with antibiotics, is healing nicely. It will be released back into the wild shortly
