Some animals have the unfortunate – and very scary – penchant for getting under car hoods and getting stuck there. Most of us have probably heard about or witnessed street cats being the central characters in such incidents, especially when they seek warmth during the colder months. But, as it turns out, unlucky adventures with cars happen also to such seemingly unlikely animals as … snakes.

Wild West Wildlife Rehabilitation Center received a call about a bull snake that made it into… a McDonald’s. The employees managed to shoo her back outside, but, unfortunately, as the snake was going across the parking lot, she was run over by a car. Afterward scared and confused, the snake went right up into one of the restaurant’s employee’s SUV engine.

It took the rescuers about an hour to find the snake and, finally, get the animal out of the trap.

After the rescue, the snake was immediately taken to Canyon Road Animal Hospital to get X-rays for the injuries she had suffered.

At the hospital, the snake – who turned out to be a girl – was thoroughly examined.

It was discovered that the accident had resulted in over half a dozen broken ribs and some internal bleeding.

The snake will have to be in care for at least six weeks – but she is in very good hands and has great chances of making a full recovery.

“The McDonald’s Bullsnake,” as her rescuers write about her on their Facebook page, had a real chain of ill-starred adventures in one day – but, thanks to the help she received, she is now on her way to getting back in shape. Check out the lengthy rescue here.

If you would like to donate towards the snake’s medical care, you can do it via the rescue’s website.
