Surprise! Woman makes unexpected find while grabbing a trolley at Coles

Surprise! Woman makes unexpected find while grabbing a trolley at Coles

A mum got a shock as she spotted a large python hiding when grabbing a trolley from Coles. She shared the photo of the brown patterned snake that was spotted in the bay outside the Coles supermarket in Everton Park, just north of Brisbane CBD on Friday.

She posted a photo to the Coles Facebook page, joking that she might “just skip the trolley today and grab a basket”.

Coles quickly responded to the incident, asking if the mum had told staff about the slithery friend.

“A staff member was made aware,” the mum responded. “They were great. Straight onto it without any hesitation. You’ve got a great team there!”

“Thanks for confirming, Victoria!” Coles responded. “We’ll pass on your feedback to our Store Manager and thanks for sharing this image of our slithery friend in store.”

Commenters were quick to joke about the incident.

“The poor (little) snake just wanted to pop in for some groceries,” one wrote.

A spokesperson confirmed to Yahoo News Australia that a snake catcher was called into the scene and removed the snake without any issues. The snake catcher confirmed it was a non-venomous python that was probably seeking shelter from heavy rain.
