An Oregon woman’s Facebook page has gone viral after she posted photos showing a snake stuck in her gauged earlobe hole. Ashley Glawe wound up in the emergency room after her pet snake, Bart, a ball python, poked its head into her stretched earlobe and became stuck.
Glawe has since recovered from the incident, according to media reports. She began posting about her ordeal on Jan. 23, and her original post quickly began piling up shares and likes — more than 32,000 shares and 23,000 likes, according to a report today by Fox News Health.
“A friend informed concerned commenters that doctors at Portland Adventist Hospital made a slight cut in Glawe’s ear and used Vaseline while further stretching the lobe with a plastic tool so that the snake could wiggle out,” the report notes. “Glawe told another commenter that her ear was numbed before the procedure and that the experience hurt ‘a little,’ but Bart was unharmed.”
