Shopper surprised by snake on shopping cart

A New York woman unknowingly carried a snake into a grocery store – on her shopping cart.

The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reported that Laura Walitsky said she was at Wegmans in Pittsford when her daughter spotted the snake wrapped on the bottom of her cart.

Walitsky walked the cart outside and alerted store employees, who removed the snake and placed it in a nearby wooded area.

A biology professor who saw a photo of the snake identified it as a non-venomous milk snake.
