When a patron at the Redmen Club saw what he thought was a rubber snake, no one thought much of it. Then it moved.

The six-foot-long New Jersey Pine snake caused a bit of a ruckus at the West Main Street bar around 8:40 p.m. Tuesday.

According to Redmen bartender Mary Ann Green, the snake had curled up under a machine along the bar's east side wall near the doorway leading to the bar's outdoor patio. At one time, there had been a rubber snake that had hung from a fire extinguisher next to the machine, leading those in the bar to think that's what it was.

When it moved, though, so did many of the bar patrons. While others were inclined to move away, one went towards it, picking it up and putting it in a box for safekeeping — outside the bar.

LPD Lt. Adam Piedmont and Officer David Pytlik were called to the scene, finding the snake on Crooked Alley, which runs from the police department to North Transit Street between the Redmen Club and the Niagara Hotel.

The police then called in a specialist — Fred Kick, owner of Pets Plus — who identified the snake and offered to hold it for a week to see if it was claimed.

Despite sneaking into the private club, the snake was not charged with trespassing.
