A RESIDENT in Llodio, Alava, got a shock when a snake came slithering out of the slot of a cash machine when he withdrew his money.
Local Police report that this occurred at a Caja Madrid bank at around 8am when the client went to get some money before going to work. The middle-aged man grabbed his money despite the snake attempting to attack him.
He then alerted the police, who arrived on the scene, and with the help of the bank manager, discovered that the snake was trapped by the mechanism of the cash point.
The manager activated it from the inside, freeing the snake, which was put in a box and taken to a shelter.
The Local Police cannot understand how the snake got trapped in the cash machine, but it is not far from the countryside, so it may have got there alone. However, they have not ruled out the possibility that someone may have put it there for a prank.
The video of the snake trapped in the machine can be seen on YouTube, where a witness comments how bad banks are getting nowadays that they use snakes so you can’t take your money.
