Shopper finds live snake inside bag of broccoli from Aldi

Recommended Posts

A grandfather says he was given a fright after he opened a bag of broccoli he had purchased at an Aldi store and found a ladder snake inside.

Neville Linton, 63, described finding the reptile, which was later identified as a ladder snake, as a "frightening" experience.

The father-of-three said he bought the broccoli at an Aldi branch in Stourbridge in the West Midlands.

When taking it out of his fridge to prepare a meal, he found the non-venomous snake nestled in near the stem.

Neville was understandably terrified of the snake, so he called his sister Ann-Marie Tenkanemin to come and give him a hand.

Neville and Ann-Marie put the snake in a tub, drove back to the Aldi where the broccoli had been initially bought, and presented it to a shop assistant.

We’re hoping they at least got a 25 per cent discount.

The snake was then taken to Dudley Zoo.

Following the incident, Mr Linton said he has been offered compensation, but is pushing for more.

Prick. He didn't have to buy meat to go with the broccoli.

Snakes occasionally find their way into my house, though they’re non-venomous fox snakes that only strike when they feel threatened. I make a point to turn on the lights and check the floor when I’m walking through my house after dark. Just one of the many exciting things you encounter when living in the country.

I would have probably just released the snake in the woods close to my house.    And of course, let the store know what I found.

Aldi's is like the dollar general store. Besides chips or cereal, you can't trust any food there.
