A Florida woman was praised for overcoming her fear of snakes to rescue a long hose stuck in a beer.
At the end of March, Rosa Love, of Brooksville, Florida, told WFLA she was driving, she saw a black racer snake near the side of the road. The head of the snake turned out to be stuck in a discarded can of Bud Light.
“I couldn’t let her die,” she told the news station of her decision to “have the courage” to rescue the snake.

Love later took to Facebook with an approximately four-minute video of the rescue, that they “never expected,” she writes. As of Saturday morning, her footage of the event was almost 60,000 views.
“It was a fight, but I’ve seen her,” Fond, who found that the snake wrapped itself around her arm at one point said in the post.
“All for the sake of the animals…she enjoyed her Bud Light,” she added, in a part. “I’m still freaking out and can’t [believe] I touched her!! The rescue at its best!”
“You rock,” one person explained in the response.
“A lot of respect for taking the time and effort to save that snake,” another said.

“Great job! Your love for animals, especially those in need, helped you overcome your fear of snakes,” a third wrote.
Crazy, who is the founder of a local animal rescue called Animal and Human United, told WFLA she is used to rescuing dogs, horses, and even mice and alligators. But they usually avoid snakes if they can.
“I look at them, I see them, but I don’t like touching them,” she said.
