We've heard about snakes on a plane. How about snake on a crane?

SCOTT DETROW, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Scott Detrow. Snakes on a crane - that is what one commenter wrote in response to a video filmed in Dominica. It shows construction workers hoisting an enormous boa constrictor out of the ground. A follow-up video shows three men trying and failing to place it into a small sedan. The animal seemed pretty unfazed by it but was not friendly. But that is OK because you do not want a boa constrictor to offer you a hug. It's MORNING EDITION.
