An employee said a brow tech first saw the reptile at her station near the front of the store.

Five members of the Owensboro Fire Department helped a pest control company remove the snake from the store.

Members of a wild life rescue told the employee the snake was a red bellied black snake, which is venomous. We’re working to confirm the exact species of the snake.
