KELSO, Wash. (AP) -- The Kelso, Wash., man who called 911 for help corralling his 10-foot-long red tail boa constrictor indicated it was, well, cranky.

The Daily News of Longview says (http://bit.ly/nWD3sW) a Thursday night dispatch report indicates the man reported the 50-pound, nonpoisonous snake had "struck at" his wife twice, but no one had been bitten.

A Humane Society officer dispatched to the apartment secured the snake within about 20 minutes of the call for help.
