BROOKSVILLE, Fla. -- There was a very unusual animal rescue in Florida recently.

Rosa Fond was driving in Brooksville Thursday evening when she spotted a snake with its head stuck in a beer can on the side of the road.

Fond, who owns Humans and Animals United Rescue, says once she saw the snake she knew she had to save it -- even though she may not be a big fan of the slithery creatures.

Fond started recording on her cellphone and grabbed a stick in an attempt to free the black racer snake from the can.

It took several minutes, but she ultimately was able to free the snake's head from the can.

She points out that she eventually picked up the can but had to wait until the snake "calmed down."

She was heard on the recording saying to the snake, "You better thank me for the rest of your life."
